It could be a kit from years back from a company called Circus Circus Hobbies, I had one and seems to me that was the size of it.

RE: New Lozenge fabric

RE: Benz Bz IV - 1/6 scale engine scratch build

Flying Fox:

I'm afraid my prints are as your's too, Frank Mizer's. I did blow them up to 1/5th and 1/4 scale, that's about 139" wingspan on that 1/4, to big!

Take care....
