Default Gasser warbird

I'm trying to get out of the realm of nitro warbirds and into a more "gas" friendly bird. Any suggestions on what to get for a 25-40 size gas engine?

I have a .60 nitro spitfire and love the way it flies; just tired of the price tag of fuel. I was looking at the GS spit from World models or CMP but I don't know if the fuse / plane is large enough to incorporate a gas engine on the nose.

Thoughts?

The GS Spit from WM would definitely be large enough to use a gasser in it. As for the smaller CMP Spit, the RCS 140 and the Roto 25 might fit.

Both the CMP and WM Spitfires are large enough to accomodate a gas engine, such as the Roto25, MVVS 1.60 (26cc) and RCS 1.40. I have the Roto25 in a KMP Hurricane and the cowl on my CMP Spitfire is larger than the cowl on the Hurricane, so it would fit. The WM Spitfire is even larger, so that also wouldn't be a problem.
