Default BIG (like 2 x 20-cells) twin conversion suggestions wanted

Hi guys

My modelling buddy Woody is so ecstatic with his 55" span retract-equipped Flair P-47 Razorback conversion, on 20 cells and AXI 4130/16 on 14x10, that he wants a twin warbird for two of the same power trains. This was his very first electric BTW, pics below, and the stars 'n bars have been re-painted bigger to be more scale since the pics were shot. Costruction is fi-glass fuz, foam-veneer flying surfaces, obviously a far eastern product.

Can anyone list any big, say about 80-90" span ARF warbird twin kits that would suit? Me110, P-38, Mosquito, etc etc? Or is there a big dearth of these at present?

A big OV10a might be nice!

TIA

Gordon

Ah ... I just saw Mookie's VQ P-38 conversion thread lower down the list. Lovely ship!

Is this kit available in UK?

This is one that I've been eyeing myself. I'm think of twin Jeti Phasor 30-3 on a 3s pack.

Thanks John

The large one sure looks cool!

Woody's had to go off on business so he won't see this for a day or so.

Cheers
