Name this glider?

I've got a photo of a glider my dad build off of plans at about 1953. Does anyone know what it was called, if there are plans out there? It was a free flight model, using an escapement, that he would have to chase across pastures and towns, back then.

Thanks
Richard

Hey Rich;
You may want to ask the FF forum to see if you get any info out of them. Or, how about Don Ross?

Good luck;
Kurt
