It's from a kit produced by SIG Models, which I now understand originated from a larger Sinbad in the Berkeley line? All-balsa, Ambroid and/or Duco Cement was probably the glue, and covering is white silkspan from the kit with a bit of orange tissue for a trim color.
My father gave me this kit as a Christmas or Birthday gift, I was about 12 or so and he bought it at the Palisades Hobby Shop in Pacific Palisades, California, a truly old-school LHS "local hobby shop" that was a second home to many of us growing up there at that time.
Grew up in Pacific Palisades, California; raised on airplanes and with brothers and friends built and flew models; formerly flew and worked on 1:1 scale vintage taildraggers; serial procrastinator/underachiever.
