Default Model pictures

I am attaching some pictures of the model I would like to identify before take a decition on buy it or not
Maybe someone can tell by the pics the manufacturer or some detail that could help me
All I can say the wing spam is around 160" and the fuselage length about the same
Thanks in advance

Looks like a Balsa USA 1/3 scale J3 Cub.

Do not think so the Balsa USA 1/3 Piper Cub is 141" of wing span, this model is almost 160" based on my own research I am guessing it could be a Bill Hempel 40% PIper Cub with the hatch over the cabin but I am not sure

Looks to be scratch build to me. I believe Hempel Cubs have wing tubes.
