I used 3 inch flexible aluminum duct in my last collectors.

It works OK.  Just be careful when stretching it out.

For 12x3 you would want to run the tubes in parallel with plenums at each end.

No opinion on push/pull.  My fans are in the middle of the U-shaped air path so they are a combination of push and pull.

My thought was to use 3 or 4 inch flexible aluminum thin foil ducting

Welcome Dave. This is fine for a few general questions. You may want to open a separate thread/topic if you'll be asking a lot questions about your planned collector. I've deleted the post where you first asked your question which was in a thread about thermostats.

Go to the appropriate forum (for your collector probably 'Solar Hot Air Collectors') and click on the 'New Topic' button at the upper right corner.

If you like I can move these existing posts over for you?
