Default What airplane is this?

What airplane is this and what size engine(s) does it use? I looks like an .049 was mounted to it, but that's what my Satan uses. This is a larger airplane. Joe

It's not a Kombat Kitten. It doesn't look like any kit that I can recall.

I don't think so. The L'il Satan has a <20" wingspan, no sheeting to the 2nd rib, the booms are longer and different, and the stab is different. The wing of this thing is reminiscent of a Satan but the rest is either scratch built or some other kit completely.

There is no apparent bay for a fuel tank or bladder nor fuel line.
It may have been set up with a TD.049 fuel tank and engine. There are no dug in marks from a Bee style tank.
There is no fuel stains or wear from actual use.

Perhaps a modified Jr. Satan?

1973. Probably just a homebrew with a Babe Bee or Golden Bee.

That's what I think too. Maybe a local design, a club model, or a one-off. If it was a commercial kit, I figure it would have some swoopy looks, bat fin booms, whatever.

Barry Baxter has a fist full of old 1/2 A designs to rummage through on his website.
