I think that would be an extremely hard aircraft to produce. 

The visual model is easy enough but the panel is a different matter.

That kind of complexity of systems is probably impossible for a 3d cockpit 
(lack of usable font system?).

Also, it would need someone to model the gearbox and FADEC for the turbodiesel 
engines (includes autopitch etc).

I'm by no means saying its not doable; it'd just be stinking hard to do 
*well* ;-)
