Gluehand,
This model appears to have a " T " tail.

Yes Ross....and the fuselage is also completely different .....
I merely compared the shapes of the wing & stab tips, which are fairly characteristic...this one is close....

Search goes on.....

I don't remember if you've seen these links in other threads, but if not, you might find this design there:

I think I was able to log into this one, but I don't remember the details or results:

So far no luck....
I attach some new photos, of better resolution..

Note the wing retaining method....I have not seen this before (and I doubt that the idea is good....a hard landing would cause damages...)
However, this may be a clue to the model's origin......or is this solution designed by the builder...?

With wing & stab retained this way, I wonder what DT method the designer had in mind..?

There is no strengthening for hook retainment....this build is obviously not finished though....

At this stage, the AUW is 264 grams....not to bad, considering its size of 60" span, and there's no balsa whatsoever...just spruce and 1.25 mm plywood....

All comments, clues etc are highly welcome....
