1. PBY for twin glows at 40 size (lots of good cheap engines available) with retracting floats .....
........... and retracting undercarriage! or am I being too picky?! Engines fairly close together so should make good first twin, plus same chord accross wing so that should be straight-forward as well. The challenge would be that beautiful fuselage!!
2. Lysander at about 65in span. Nice intersesting wing and great slow flyer, short takeoff and landing
3. Fairy Swordfish. A classic bipe perhaps with working torpedo drop!

Right, rifling thru brain... I agree with something not ARTF'd beyond belief.
1. Bristol Beaufighter
2. Medium-scale (around 1.5m span) Gloster Meteor
3. Focke-Wulf FW-190 (preferably earlier versions before -d variant)

|How about a low wing trainer for those amongst us who want to move on from the usual high wing models? A decent size to run a 40-60 motor would be good.|

Rivets - an iconic racer, my all time favourite
Gloster Javelin (pusher, to keep it affordable)
Vickers Valiant (not a single scooby re how you'd choose to power that, but hey, you're the designer so go figure)

The challenge must be to do something different! How about an epileptic mix of ideas with mix and match options?
Multi engined - ic or electric
non specific origin - military or civilian
high wing or mid wing - parallel wing to aid building in foam or traditional
optional landing methods - floats or wheels
Good luck Tony.. still you have all year to come up with something.
I am still building the Hurricane, but will build the 09 choice whatever it is

As we've had two WW2 types (Spit & Hurry) can we have something older this time ? Maybe for a 52 or 61 four stroke?
My choices would be
1) Hawker Hart / Hind / Fury2) DH9
All for IC power or both
