I'm pretty certain this plane is from BJ Craft, not from Argentina, but that's my guess.

I think youre right
The 2 photos on the Morris Hobby website show a BJCraft sticker on the rear fuse by the tail

Another interesting development regarding BJCraft and Akiba

There are now 2 websites showing the newer version of the Fantasista 70 available for sale
So maybe all the 70 size BJCraft planes arent dead after all !

Yes, but the price is still pretty steep (82,000 yen) for a 70 sized model. Morris hobbies also shows a Fantasista 110 for 175,000 yen. Even a Flight Hobby Neo Stage 70 kit will probably cost around $500 delivered and you can get the 2 meter version (in kit form) for slightly more than twice that. Unfortunately, I just don't think there is enough demand for the smaller models. At least at those prices.
