Default Need help id'ing a kit

I just acquired a partially built kit and I need some help figuring out what this is. The wingspan is 67 1/4", the fuse as it sits is 44 3/8", the rudder is 26 1/2", the fuselage in the front is 4" wide, and the bottom plate of the cockpit is 8 3/8" x 4". I was told that this was a Bruce Tharpe Venture 60, I have the book for that plane but not the plans. After looking at some pics and videos of a Venture 60, I don't think that is what this kit is. This kit has built up ribs on the sides of the fuselage and the Venture has smooth sides, the Venture has a rectangular rudder and this kit's rudder will be "L" shaped and go over the top of the vertical stab.

Any help would be appreciated.

Better late than never, I'd almost given up hope. Thank you very much.

Jim is right. Sorry I didn't see it sooner but as soon as I saw the pictures of the airframe I wished there was a picture of the canopy, that's what would give it away. Sure does look like a Dalotel. Great flying airplane!
