With some pretty creative hinging I suppose. You would need 4 doors than can open to reverse flow. And some means of preventing it from deploying mid air. Like microswitches on the landing gear mains that cut of power to the system so it can only work with wheels down! Trouble is, 70mm fan shrouds are a bit small for this kind of tinkering. 90 mm would make it easier.
Everything is possible !

@DerekB: It`s realy all about what you select in the pull down menu with the windrider website. Not sure what Atlanta Hobby caries though, send them an email to find out to be clear. MING lets you chose all sorts of options which he has pretty much tested so his choices are pretty good.

Oh, I was confused. Your gonna laugh. Since you can buy "first class" tickets or "economy class" tickets, I thought maybe there were 2 different versions of the airframe - one for only "economy" passengers with a whole bunch of tiny windows and one for only "first class" passengers with fewer big windows (and Ming shows 2 different photos, so it led me to think 2 airframe versions). I know that would be odd, but what do I know!

I see now on Ming's list, "first class" vs "economy" refers to the components. Both lists are the same price until you get to the motor / esc / battery.

Atlanta Hobby has airframe, retracts and fan units only in their "kit". So my question about any "difference" is moot, since there is only one airframe.

She`s a beast! Gonna follow your progress. Your building techniques reminds me of Olle, the guy on RCgroups who started on a huge A380 years back using Depron. Awesome skills, requires a lot of patience!

Sad news about Olle giving up after all this work.
The A380 wing has its share of complex stuff, you should have fun with that!

I think that is the coolest livery ever on a B737. Haven't seen a better one yet. I've seen some high-res fotos of this livery, and you keep finding new funny texts.
