Default Please Identify

Hello Folks. I need someone to identify an airplane I bought used. I believe it is a Cessna 182 simply because it LOOKS like one, especially with the downturned wing tips. The wing measures 72.5 inches tip to tip down the main spar which would make it a 1/6 scale since the full size 182 is 36.0 feet. The thing I find odd about this model is that the hatch cover for the aileron servos (it has one in each wing half) is in the top of the wing. The control rods exit the wing on the bottom side, but the hatch cover is on the top side. I need to know what brand the model is because I want to buy a cowl for it. It was covered in some kind of fabric and painted, very badly, when I got it. I have removed the covering and am going to re-cover it, but I would really like to buy the factory cowl for it, if possible, or I will have to improvise. I will now attempt to upload a picture of the wing for your amazement--wish me luck.

It looks very much like the old Goldberg Skylane 62. But, the wingspan is 10 inches too long.
Full Scale 182's have a tailcone. The rudder does not extend all the way to the bottom of the fuselage, like yours does.
So, Youv'e got me! I don't know. It looks like a stand way off scale Cessna of some sort.
Good Luck!

Could be a Global Skylane.

That indeed is a Global Skylane I built one about 16 years ago. I don't understand why the hatches are on top, mine come off the servo and go to the horn on the aileron. Let me know if Global is of any help I had to order a new cowl when I built it because it was deformed, I could use another one now because all the plastic melted after a fire in the basement, I want to rebuild it. Heres a couple pics during building.

I just noticed that your servo's are in the leading edge of the wing and they should be behind the spar more towards the center as are mine. In my photo you can see the edge of the two servos if you look close.
