Looks like maybe the old Bridi / Great Planes kit. If so, no good news. No longer produced. The original Modaire kits will be back in production soon, but it is much larger. http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_4658859/tm.htm

I agree that it looks like the Bridi brand (same plane sold later as GP). I have two of them in the boxes along with new wing cores. You can find these from time to time on Ebay. They generally fetch about 300 to 350 dollars. The original kits had reported problems with tip stalling at approach speeds. The new wing cores have a slightly broader wing tip cord and a touch of wash out and reportedly make the plane safer. A search of the subject will lead you to the new cores from one of the RCU members. I still see the kit on Ebay, but not as often. But I'm sure you can find one. Good luck !

If the wing span is 92" it's not the Bridi/GP. I have the GP, I haven't measured the wing span lately but it's not 92". It has the new foam wing cores. Tip is 6" instead of 4" and the washout was built in. Got them from a company in CA. Read the threads here on RCU. Flys fine, but be sure to keep speed up on landing.
