When I design a plane like these I try to consider a few things. CG, where the prop will fit, a good airflow, what's the best location structurally........things like that.

You'll also find that most of the "profile" type builds (like this F-18) have the mid-mounted motor setup, whereas the fully built up planes (like all of jetset44's creations) have a rear mounted motor. It's just the way the design works out. Harder to put a motor on the tail of a profile, and harder to put the prop in the middle of a built up.
