    Need a plane/kit ID

    I acquired a box of what I thought was odds and ends of wood at an estate giveaway event. When I went through the box at home, I realized there were matching ribs scattered throughout the box. Then, I found fuselage sides, a fin and rudder, elevators, and a landing gear - why it was a kit, mostly complete, of an R/C airplane with no plans in a plain, unmarked box bottom.
    It has a wingspan of 75 " with a 13 " chord, strip ailerons, and conventional gear made of 7/32" music wire. It has the construction style of an Aamco Sportmaster with the stringered turtledeck, round foredeck and an open cockpit. Parts are diecut. I am guessing a 90 2C or 120 4C would be the correct engine for it.
    Can anyone come up with a positive ID on this?

    RE: Need a plane/kit ID

    Thaks for the input, but I know it is not a Sig Ryan or a Chipmunk though I agree the rudder has that look. It is simply a sport plane with a constant chord wing but who made it and what was it called. I have discounted the Dragon Fly which is similar but smaller. I just can't remember seeing any airplane like this in a kit.
    More guesses are welcome. Someone is bound to know.

    I think it is an Enticer short kit. If you agree the plans are available from Flying Models Magazine.

    RE: Need a plane/kit ID

    YES! That is it!
    What I have is certainly not a short kit as all of the parts are there from what I can see. Someone obviously made a kit of it. From the plans provided in the attachment, I will be able to construct the airplane.
    My apologies to Dick Sarpolus, but I am going to give the fuselage a redo to give it a better looking profile.
    Thank you turbo.gst for having a sharp eye and an interest to help.

    Glad to help. Good luck with your project. For what it is worth, I have always heard good things about the way Mr. Sarpolus design's fly.
