My first thought was the Top Flight Elder, but upon inspection of your pictures one can see the construction is different and also the dimensions.

Well, at least the Elder can be ruled out.

It doesn't have to be a kit or even a known plan.
In any case, it's based on a between wars German fighter, Junkers or similar.
I don't know whether it's actually a scale model or not. I'll check.

I was at first thinking it was a kit bashed version of a Sterling Fokker D-VII setup as a monoplane. But it may really be a scratch built plane that someone made.

Earl, the front of a DVII fuselage isn't tapered like that.
Around 1917 to 1920 there were several Austro-German low-wing fighters like this one and, if it really is scale then it's one of those.
It's a shame the ailerons are missing as, on some of the planes concerned, the ailerons were an artistic curly shape that would have been a valuable clue.

Thanks brokenenghlish, good point, I was thinking someone changed the front somewhat. But yeah it is likely one of those Austo-German low wing fighters. So then it leads me back to it being a scratch build from plans somewhere. Of course a Top Flite Elder flipped upside down so it is a low wing instead of a shoulder wing might be what the builder did.

rchopper, the Proctor kits that I have seen all used built up multi-piece wing ribs. A builder needed to spend a considerable amount of time just making up the wing ribs, before they did anything else. The Proctor kits tended to be works of art, you sort of, hated to have to cover it when done.

That was my first thought so I had a look at the Proctor web site and if it is a modified Antic it has been modified out of sight - low wing instead of shoulder, different tail and fin shape, different fuselage front end etc. The only real similarity is the open girder rear fuselage - but given that the covering has been stripped off the wings maybe this was also covered originally?? So I don't buy it as a modified Antic and I think the theory that it might be a one off is probably close to the mark. Are there any markings on the ribs etc to indicate that it might have been built from a pre-cut kit?

I would say that someone scratched it out, wing tips are a good sign.

Yes very very nice I remember one Proctor kit I had in the past but never got to build it, these kits were made for BUILDERS, very expensive kits as well. I still do have two Proctor scimitar wood laminated propellors NIP. Friend Emmanuel that I bought the Record Breaker from did build have one of these Proctor Jenny's and magnificent it is. Remember there was also a mini-antic
