Comet P-40E Tiger Shark Kit

I have this kit. I haven't built it yet. I'm thinking about making it electric someday.
Does anybody have any opinions about this kit? Anyone built it?
It seems to be rare and I couldn't find any build threads on it.
It has a 31" wingspan. It has diagonal wing ribs which cross each other.

Is it print wood or die cut ?
I built some of these long ago , good kits but personally I prefer Guillows .
Should be a good build , tons of info on similar size kits in the Gulliow forums that may help with power supply

I used to build and fly a lot of freeflight. The Comet P-40 was a way better flyer than any of the Guillows models. Guillows balsa was very hard and and heavy. The Comet P-40 is actually a P-40C model even though the box shows a later model. I think it'd be a great choice for an electric conversion.

I agree Guillows wood is...or at least was pretty poor. They are cheap however, and fun to build.

I also agree, check out the scale forum.
