What model is this???

Hi there, a friend of mine gave me this old sailplane, It was stored for a while and a little damaged, I wonder what plane it is and how well it flies , it is heavier than my Sophisticated lady, and seems to had an engine on the nose. now it its ready to cover, but is worth the time and money to do so??

Thank you!!

With a little more work that should fly well.I would use a strip of 3/4 oz. fiberglass at all the wing dihedral joints.A little more time sanding, make a canopy .It should: fly well with a small out runner and a 2 or 3 cell lipo.
