Well weight calculations were re done and it turns out this model can be built RTF under 77lbs!.

After subtracting weights of edfs, lipos, esc, all the electronics and landing gear, left with 33lbs to build this airframe.

DAG of rcg and Todd Burley both are giant scale modelers and both agreed that it's very much possible to do with foam, FG,CF and ply/balsa build. Since this will 1 off model, all the efforts will go in making it the best it can be made and super scale except at areas where some compromise will be needed to bring into the reality of the model.

I still have to figure out how retractable mains will be done and how nose gears will be able to pivot back into the gear bay when nose will be opened for loading cargo into it.
