Looks like a Sig Astro Hog bipe to me. Cabanes and interplane struts modified, or maybe from initial versions of the kit.

It's really the RCM Acro Star, which was kitted by Airtronics.

Desinged by Don Dewey and Lee Renaud.

Comes from April 1973 RCM as I recall. Plan no. PL-525. Still available.

It did not have a glass cowl. It was wood.

FYI, the Acro Star was a descendant of the Wayfarer which was a descendant of the Hobo.
