Default 30% Extra?

I recently got this plane at the Perry swapmeet. 88" wing span, 36" stab. Balsa sheeted wings, tailfeathers, and turtledeck. Could this be a Carden 300? The canopy/ hatch is a 2pc arrangement. Fuselage is very lightweight. The rudder is missing, so I'll need to fab one. Any help in identifying would be greatly appreciated.
thanks,
Chuck Lackey

Yes, looks like a early 2000’s Carden.

My biggest question for now is how is the bottom of fuselage to be done.The airframe is only about 75% complete, mostly minor details remain to do completion, but without any construction plans, its hard to determine extactly what needs to be done. I had one of these airframes about 5 yrs ago, and passed it along to another flyer, wanting to get into aerobatic planes. That one seemed much heavier. The one I now have seems very light, so I'm wondering what's missing! Any help from someone that's familiar with this particular airframe would be greatly appreciated.
