Is this Dirty Birdy or a UFO?

I recently got back into flying after a ten year absence and decided to get one of my old pattern ships off the garage ceiling and get it flying again. I have always thought this was a Dirty Birdy, but after looking through the thread on making molds of classic pattern airplanes I now have my doubts. The vertical stab is one piece with the fuse and the push rod exits are molded in. The wing is swept back on the leading and trailing edge. When viewed from the front, the canopy is narrower at the base than it is towards the top. I guess it could be a UFO, but I don't know for sure. Any help would be appreciated.
I need to go through it from spinner to rudder before it flies again, but I am anxious to get it in the air. The top view was before I cleaned it, boy was it dirty.
