Looks like an Eindecker to me! check out this link: http://www.balsausa.com/kits/kit.htp?id=40&shopperid=

I don't think it's the same kit, but the style looks similar.

It looks like the Elder 40 made by top flite. there was another one before that called the Miss Vintage which looks very similar. the Miss Vintage had an up right engine where the Elder has a inverted engine. yours looks like the engine is upright but even if it is the Elder changing the way the engine mounts wouldn't be a hard job. I would say it's the Elder.

That depends on your engine, not the plane. But if you use a 40 size engine, a 10X6 would be right.
