Question Help Me Identify Plane From Wings

Hello all,

I built these wings about 20yrs ago, got side tracked and never finished it.
Don't remember which magazine the plans were in but I have always wanted to say RCM.
Could have been as early as 1993 or as late as 2003 maybe. I think the video was shot in 2003
but I may have built it from an old mag I had.
I've tried searching RCM plans in various places but no luck yet. Perhaps it wasn't RCM :/
I don't have the wings anymore and all that I have to help is a bad screenshot of a very old video.

Thanks in advance

The only thing I can think of with that wing tip shape is the Wittman Tailwind. Model Aviation (the AMA mag) ran a build article and has plans but I do not know if RCM ever did.

It does look similar but...

The wings in my photo are completed wings including wing joiner tube and the space in the middle is where the fuselage goes.

It's a delta sorta speedster model.
Wingspan around 30".

Thx tho ;-)

My bad Orbitter, I better understand now what I am looking at. Unfortunately it does not look familiar to me at all. Good luck!
