Help!
Identify this kit

Could anybody identify this kit it was acquired from a garage sale. There are no instructions and the box lid is missing so I have no idea of the brand name or model name, I'm guessing it's in the old timer section. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Regards Alan

Looks like an Astro Flite Viking, Bob Boucher's enlarged (62") electric version of the Cleveland Viking.

Plan first published in January 1985 Model Builder and subsequently a kit by Astro Flite and then Spirit of Yesterday.

It may be the Carl Goldberg ARF, "Goldbug" (I think it was called that) Clearly the lines are after the Cleveland Viking
