Default Motor / Batttery / ESC Sizing Help Needed

Hi Everyone,
I am looking for assistance and recommendations for a motor, ESC and scale prop combination. Perhaps one that has already been proven to work?
I am converting a scratch built Wendell Hostetler 1/3 Scale Cessna 172 from Gas to electric. It weighs 26 pounds without the engine and has a 120" wingspan. I need a combination that will provide plenty of (scale) power with a 8-12 minute flight time. For the sake of discussion, lets say, money is no object. What do you recommend?
Wendell Hostetler Cessna 172 Skyhawk
Thanks in advance!
