Angry Stolen 1940s Vintage Line Controlled Bi-Plane - Asking For Help

Hello!

I hoping someone can help point me in the right direction.

A couple months ago my deceased fatherís vintage line controlled model airplane was stolen from my storage unit.

As a child in the mid 1940s, he flew this in competitions in St. Paul, Minnesota, winning many awards along the way. For obvious reasons, the sentimental value is very high.

While the chance of recovery is low, I'd like to find out as much information about it, if only for police report and insurance claim information.

Any idea what year this is?

Any idea which company, if any made it? It's possible this is a homebuilt design as my grandfather was a master modeler, mainly working on railroad models.

Lastly, any idea what ballpark value I should place on my police report or insurance claim?

Thanks so much!
Chris

It was stolen from the tiny town of Siren, Wisconsin in the NW part of the state.
