Default Extra 300s that I would like Great Planes to make

One of my favorite looking arfs of all time was the 1/4 scale Patty Wagstaff Extra 300s. Now that it has been discontinued I would like a new one aimed at the 20cc to 35cc engines that are on the market now. Here is a list of the features I think it should have.
1. Aproximately 74" wing span
2. Foam core wings and tail feathers like the revolver 70
3. Fully sheeted fuse
4. Pipe tunnel built in
5. Set up for tail mounted servos for 35cc engines and front mounted servos for 20cc engines
6. Should weigh in at 10 to 12 lbs
7. Exactly the same trim scheme as the old 1/4 scale Patty but also include the landing gear fairings and use gold paint instead of gold pin striping on the cowling.
8. Include an aluminum spinner that is painted white with the red swirl on it.

If they build this plane I will buy it and I think it would be a big hit because of the popularity of the new small gas engines. Also I think the market is flooded with the toothpick type" keep it lite at all cost "aerobatic airplanes, so I feel there is for sure a place in the market for a sturdy and scale looking aerobatic plane right now.

If anyone has some nice pics of their 1/4 scale Pattys please post a couple so people who don't know about this plane can see what it looks like.
