It's the 1/2A 48" WS.
The struts are definitely not structural. The wing is very sturdy. It's interesting that you suggest they be removed before flight. I was looking for a more scale appearance but since they are totally faux, now I'm thinking about leaving them off! Also thanks for pointing out that the aluminum may be a liability. If you notice in the pictures, I used clear silicone on the landing gear so it would be able to flex slightly.
