I'm guessing a Lanier Laser.

Wooden spar looks like a G & L Hobbies 50% Laser ..Is the fuse fiberglass ?

Based on the shape of the cowl, Rudder and Elevators, not to mention the fuse shape, I would suggest a Laser...probably around 40-50% scale....

I think I have the spec right. The guy said he taped it and it came out to 12 feet wide and 9 feet long.
From some other pictures I am guessing the fuse is balsa. I think I see the cover bubble in a close up picture.The plane comes with motor and all servos(dont know what kind) he says it runs with a big gaser.

How much would you pay for the plane just looking at the pictures? I am buying this plane thursday and I am alittle confussed on what to pay. I all ready fly a couple gaints but I am lost on the value of something SO LARGE

Looks alittle Rough in my opinion....Not knocking it on your behalf just saying that you should buy it for a song and not a note if you know what I'm trying to say.....The engine looks like its just some converted chain saw type due to the large factory cooling fin hub that is on there veiwing the pics. Make sure its been flown with that setup otherwise low ball it to make sure you don't get hurt in the price...The more details you can provide us the better value assesment we can give you....The engine would have to be a larger twin like a 120-150 cc Gasser to fly worth beans ....... Good luck.

Looking at the cowl it is a scratch built 40% Laser 200 from plans. Don't rememeber who the plans where, they came with cowl and pants.
I had a friend that built one, but he built his own cowl with the big cheeks.
