2-Meter classic sailplane RTF or BNF

...can't remember what model actually is; looks like a Drifter/Wander or older Sig 2-metre from the late 80's. I've had it for over 15 years. Completely refurbished and lightened/strengthened last year and test-flown only twice off the slope since. Trouble is, I have three other gliders the exact same size and I just wont get around to flying it much next year either.
It has been completely recovered 3 years ago; wing is perfect with neon green stripes on bottom (for visibility). Wing is reasonably strong too, should take a winch no problem. The only thing youneed to add is a tow-hook (plywood tow-hook mount is already installed). Some modern additions include a magnetic hatch with a small offset for cooling (should you choose to add electric power) and removal of the old lead weights in front in favour of Plastercine as close to the nose as possible for reduced wing loading.
Wonderful, slow and relaxed flyer that should qualify for old-timer events. Out floats a Gentle Lady and lighter/stonger wing. Traditional built-up construction, warp-free. (Fuselage does have a few marks and scuffs from landing on the slope; nothng major).
I've added silver striping/trim and it now looks much more attractive than the previous all-blue (the silver is also excellent at reflecting the sun in turns so the glider can be seen when it's just a spec).
Futaba 133s servos installed. $175 receiver-ready; or add $45 for BNF installed Spektrum AR500 as shown. Must sell, cannot afford divorce lawyer; wife says I only buy and acumulate and she is right. Wing is one-piece so local pick up only.
I'm in Thornhill (GTA).
