RC install for Accucraft Garratt?

I'm getting one in the next batch and would like to have RC installed before I receive it. I've ordered through RGSRR, but he says his regular steam RC guy won't do the work because it's too fiddly. Could anyone recommend someone to do the work - I'm in Boston but it doesn't matter much where it's done.

R/C in these models is involved.. the valve gear needs 2 servos one at each engine unit,mounted on custom plates/brackets and rocker arms with new wieghshafts at both ends, both tank units have to be removed and the existing gear drive shafts etc removed.other than that its fairly straight forward.
