Help!

Please help Identify


Guys
I could use some help identifying this one.
I am guessing 80ís vintage. It has blade joiners and a Robbe sliding servo tray mixer.
Might be E powered looking at the aft fuselage.
Wings are Obechi over foam.
Probably Robbe but canít find it.
Thanks
Larry

Have included pictures of Vampir
and Cortina. Glider is similar to Cortina but this one has different Canopy line and the underslung ventral looks more like a skid for rear mounted prop.
Thanks

Clues mentioned in first post but will elaborate.
Uses flat steel Joiners with brass housings.
Same as Ray used on Osprey.
Fuselage is lap seamed.
Mechanical sliding tray mechanism. Made by Robbe
Package of Bowden 1mm cable. Uses Robbe Header.
Both the Mixer and Cable are standard hardware sold in a model shop.
By 80 everyone was going Round Rod and Tube to reduce creating a stress riser. Wet joined fuelage seam is 78-79 in Germany 80ish in USA. Wing is covered in Obechi and uses the same general dimensions and control surface size as Cortina.
I spoke with Craig and he seemed to remember Eisman having a Wing in his Catalog. The Construction is similar to Eisman Focus. I got this with several kits I retrieved as a request from the Son of one of my friends that past. The latest kit in the group are Viking kits and a Prodigy. He told me the box for the wing was decomposing and this was what was left.
Thanks for any ideas. Larry

No idea what it is but you might get more success if you posted the question on rc-network.de or some other European forum.

Blade in brass was in use through the 90's by some German manufacturers. How do I know? I had a DG 300 Elan 4 meter by multiplex from Bob Boomer purchased in 1995 + or -
folded the wings on the third flight.
Same for the wet lap. Rodell Modelle was having fuses made in Hong Kong in those days and they were wet lapped. Can't remember others too old, too many beers, too much sun.

Thanks Guys
I am glad you could help identify this one. Craig did you go in to your Indiana Jones style Washington Warehouse and make sure you didnít have two on the shelf. Havenít made a decision on this one.
But ....
Thanks to you all.
