Default Yet another mystery boat

Ok need a little help here. I just bought this and the po couldn't tell me anything about it all I know is it's 36"Lx12 1/2 W it's fiberglass over wood and has a unknown nitro engine by the looks I would say aprox 30y old and it's never seen water so put on your thinking cap and have a close look at the pics thanks

Engine is easy, K&B 45. As far as the hull, don't have a clue

I'm almost positive it was home built from a kit like Dumas but if it is a Dumas it's so old they don't show it on there website. Oh well I payed 40 for it and it came with a futaba magnum jr still in the box I pulled the glow plug to oil the piston and looked at the piston no signs of use at all. It looks as though whoever built it knew what they was doing now to start sanding and preping for paint

I've got a buddy in Indiana who has one in kit form yet. I think that it was the Eaglet but I don't know the manufacturer. There was also one that was wider and could take an inboard or outboard setup.. It had some odd trim tabs on it.
