Can anyone ID this old sailplane?

I built this back in 1987 and can't remember anything about it. Got the kit cheap, built it and sold it without ever flying it. I don't remember why I sold it; probably to buy something else. It may have been a House of Balsa kit. Not sure.

I just went through some magazines in that time period. House of Balsa did not advertise a lot. But their kits were listed under some mail order hobby places that no longer exist. Did not see any sailplanes under HoB but I do think they had one or two. Someone will recognize this

It was ID'd on another forum. It's a BUSA Breezy.

Thanks for trying!

HOB made a couple called 2x4 and 2x6.

bokuda, what does BUSA stand for? Balsa USA, maybe?

That is a great looking old plane!
I like the narrow fuse at the back. Many back then had a bigger back fuse... the Gentle Lady, and the Butterfly??? maybe...
