You have a wing span measurement? Could be a Gasbag which was 44"/344 sq.in. and designed by a Mr. Kasprzak. It appeared in the February 1942 issue of Flying Aces Magazine.

Wheels look ok, just need some new rubber

Is the engine a 19 or a 29?

Thanks guys! I will get the ws off the person that owns the model, but i believe you have hit a home run with that ID. I dont own the model & will have to ask the engine size also.I build & fly vintage models & get asked to identify anything old from fellow modelers at our club. Its guys like you that help me get them their answers.....THANKS....GEne
