Default Aircraft Identification and question

I picked this up almost a month ago and am at a loss to tell exactly what aircraft it is much less what to do about a cowl.

Help!

Who's is it and where can I get a cowl?

Thanks.

Fuse - estimated rudder hinge line to spinner tip 50 inches or less

Wing - 63 inches

I guess a 90 would be way too much. Better find the .56 Saito.

I'd split the difference,, 65 or 70 4 stroke would be great

I had one with a Tower 40 and it was plenty fast.

Guys, I'm fairly certain that is the GP .60 size kit build. The span and length that the OP gives matches much better. There are also inconsistencies in covering between the two although very close. The .40 ARF has blue striping, the OP's Extra has black. That stripe on the fuselage on the ARF also goes into the wing saddle whereas on the OP's Extra it does not. The landing gear also seems to mount a bit different. That being said, on the .60 kit GP does say up to a .90 two stroke. The link I gave for a fiberglass cowl earlier is for the .60 kit.

WOW! So I tried to put a Saito .56 on it this morning and clearly the engine mount is set up for a 90. Saito 90 time it is. Thanks for the help, and the link and the pointer. .
