Help early 80's pattern ?

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I got this from Ron Chapman in 1980 I believe it is molded after a Bearcat fighter, but if anyone from the Toronto RC Club or GTA area can correct me , please let me know. I am thinking of selling this and want to be as accurate as possible. Fuse length 45, span 57 without tips. I would not consider this scale but more a pattern / sport flyer. Any hints would be appreciated.

Re: Help early 80's pattern ?

The wings and tail section look like they are from a Bridi Dirty Birdy. Looks like somone made a mold of their own based on the Dirdy Birdy?

I have one of Ron's "Zero" from the same era. It looks a lot like that as well.
