You are not far off from where the 1/12 scale combat guys were going back in the 1990's. You will have to adjust the engine box to keep things under the cowl and make room for a fuel tank. As for retracts a lot of these airplanes were made to hand launch and belly land in the grass. If you are set on retracts, you might look at something from some of the smaller e-flight airplanes. For some info on building a warbird of this size take a look on Outerzone for an airplane called the Arsenal VG-33. It is an airplane that would be well matched to your engine. I flew mine with a .15. More importantly the plans are accompanied by an RCM article on the build that will have useful information.
