what plane would you like to see in kit form?

I'm starting to think about scratchbuilding something in the largish parkflyer size range (sp400, axi, etc, or perhaps a sp280 twin or something). I'm interested in doing something that's different, something not currently available, with the possibility of having it kitted somewhere eventually.

I've always loved the Super Chipmunk (especially in an art scholl airshow paintjob) and it is the leading contender at the moment.

I think a cessna 337 (thats the push/pull twin) would be a neat project.

the grumman F7F tigercat is another dead sexy scale plane that i havent seen many of.

and another idea was to make a seaplane that's new and different.

so here's my question for y'all: what plane or planes aren't very well represented in r/c models, or in smallish electric planes?

There´s way too few twin speed 280 planes out there. How about a B25, or a Black Widow?

You can presently purchase a Skymaster from Dymond and a Tigercat from Hobby-Lobby.

The HL Tigercat is large, and is designed for 2 Phasor brushless motors; fast(not a parkflier), and expensive(the kit alone is $260).

How about a Stuka ?
Not many of those about!
Those wings would be an interesting challenge.

How about either a Beechcraft Bonanza V-tail, or a Mooney? I like the Skymaster idea too.

I have started all of the listed except for the Aero commander which i would like to do someday. They all need alot of work to finish them but there started. I dont have a 337 started but i have the next best thing, the 336 which will be easy to design the gear for being there not retactable. I just have to much going on to finish these designs up now.

Seems like every warbird has been done at one time or another except the Mig 3. Need one of those.
