looks to to me like Carl Goldbergs Little Toot. To me I've got one I built long ago.

Almost, Renegade. I though that too at first because i've seen them and have one to build in the box. It's not though because the Lil Toot has a plank profile. This one is carved out, a hollow log fuselage that tells me its a berkeley models or a mussciano kit. It's really nice whoever made it. What a great little plane. Very few .020 kits were put out. Sad for the PeeWee.

Hey guys,

I don't know why sorting through old plans is so intriguing to me but I found myself up until the wee hours last night (morning) looking through the Flying Model plans Catalogue. I just posted this file elsewhere but thought it might be helpful here, too. I believe I have stumbled upon the same effect to guys that equates to women and their shoes - you just can't have enough planes. They don't even have to be completed, you just gotta have them(!)
Here's a photo guide to the 1/2A plans FM has:

Downloaded a few plans - pacer, mach none, shrike. However, I am on a path to build a Cessna Skymaster.
broke out the old engines and on a binge of used ones here, RCGroups, eBay, and Craigslist.
Having a great summer rediscovering!
Best,

PS
What is this?
Here's something I impulse-bought on eBay -
Anyone with a read on its name and origins (control line):
Looks like a modified Musciano / Black Hawk Models PITT's
