What the heck is it !!!!


Someone gave me this airframe about 20 years ago (and it was old then).
I'm trying to decide whether to restore it or trash it. It looks to be kit built, has a wingspan of about 42 inches, spacing of the wood mount rails suggest it was intended for 40-46 power.
Thanks for any help

It might also be the old Marutaka/Royal kit of the F-4.

I would secound the royal F4 as I don't member GP having one yet, and if they did, it wouldn't have been old then!

I'll check out the Royal specs, This one is too small to be the GP version.
I'm trying to find out any info I can, more importantly, the CG.
Anyone know how these things flew?

Thanks for all the answers, keep 'em coming.

Another vote for Royal. Enough wood to heat the shop for a winter by the time you got done carving the blocks !
Flew one with an Enya .60 in it...required full 'up' all through a 180...

Three inches less wingspan than the Royal. I'm sure it was kit built, the parts fit together so well and numbers and letters are stamped on each part. It's actually a shade less than 42 inches.
