Found a link for a BV-138 10 foot span for about $140 and it was in response to a Kuni post.

Elsewhere there was a reference to a kit with poor spar design but never mentioned the source.

The DO 26 looks interesting, but perhaps too challanging with the moving rear motors.

The D0 24 looks good to me and even better it looks like it will fly nicely. Still have not found the plans though. I did order a plastic Revell kit of both planes. If necessary I can get the dimensions for the cross sections from those.

If I sketch up some working drawings I will share them.

There are some 5 and 10 gram brushless motors for about $10. The 10 gram motors I have tried and am pretty pleased; three of the 5 gram motors are inbound from the same source and I am thinking 5" or less props, three motors and about 40" span.
