Who's Telemaster is this?

Picked up a very old Telemaster from the Jefco auction this year for $25 (score!) it's got an OS 60 that other guys identified as a 1966 model. My question is this, who made this? I've had a bridi Tele from the 80's and this is much fatter, has a full wood cowl and wood engine rails. The fuse is 52" from nose to tail and a wingspan of 77". She's a big ole girl for sure, not near as light as modern Tele's. Anyone know about what timeframe also? By the way the old OS 60 runs real sweet, took hardly any adjustment after over 25 years or so.

The wing is in great shape, I should mention the ailerons are MUCH wider (front/back) than the Bridi version, we have monocote holes here and there but overall the plane is in pretty decent shape.

Looks like A Telemaster 2000 , a pre built kit from Scorpio , Italy. It was for sale in the early '90, and distributed in USA by hobby lobby, if I remember well.
Fuse sides should be lite plywood...

I would agree it might be an ARF, but the servos are the old Futaba twisted wires and you can see where older much larger servos had been in their place, plus it has a 1966 OS 60 although there has been a different muffler at ont time. Was there such a thing as a Telemaster in the late '60's early 70's? The covering isn't ARFish and it's original.

I have to agree with you on this, looking at ours is appears the same. When was it produced?
