Might be something out of the Enterprise Models line. Also could be from a Japanese kit, as .09 engines were their preferred small c/l format.

Thanks Victor. It does have an Enya .09 sitting on the nose.

Joined flaps and elevator make it unique. I don't think I have ever seen that on a kit plane leading me to believe that it's home built?

100’s of kit planes have flaps. They have been around since the late 40’s early 50’s No idea what yours it is though. I don’t share Chancey’s opinion on the aesthetics. Very Happy

It's on the way Chancey, breaking my no more ebay rule temporarily. Sad

Couldn't resist it, my favorite Enya engine and free shipping.

What's not to love Ron........A B-17 tail stuck on a fighter plane fuselage. Maybe a dozen or so decals... Smile

I'd say this UFO is worth an "off frame" rebuild/restoration. If you can't positively ID the model, I'd suggest doing a removable fill in plug for the open cockpit and placing a removable Howard Hughes Racer style enclosed cockpit/fairing ensemble on rear of fuselage. Except for landing gear the model is evocative of a Hughes H1B Racer (not visa).

Yes, close. Tail matches, and a cowl would do it.

Great show of HH plowing though houses and a beet field in the movie "Aviator".

Finished my Firebaby clones and rediscovered this question mark.  Thinking that it's scratch built unless someone has a better idea..

Engine was locked up and completely enclosed in the cowl.  Had to cut away the balsa to get at it then an AF boil this morning.  Found out it's an Enya .09 a favorite but also an Enya .09II a double favorite.



Balsa firewall not sealed well so I removed it and found a weird custom? fuel tank that I'm going to leave in place and flush out.




Pilot figure looks to have been molded from some sort of latex/putty.



3 hour AF boil. Not disassembled except for the needle and glow plug. Cold Simple Green immersion scrub, then hot water rinse while rotating crankshaft in both directions until water expelled clear, compressed air blow out, alcohol rinse, another blowout, then flushed with Remoil. Saves time, money and gaskets.

Yup, either my son or me this spring/summer, along with about 42 other (at last count) flyable models.  Eager to try it with the flaps.  Bucket list stuff, if we don't fly them all now we may never have another chance.  



Guy reminds me of "Joe the plumber" of political fame some years ago.  He's just a little ate up.

I have some JIS screwdrivers that would make short work of those buggered machine screws. But I'm leaving it as is.

No, but I have several NIB.  Maybe one day I will fire one up just to compare with my old standards.  To many Enya's, not enough time and I hate to be the one that pulls the trigger on a new (Enya) engine.

Most interesting Enya "Special" that I have is the .09II (lower left) built for a collector (not Bob Allan) in Australia by the company.





Being your one of the authorities here on model airplanes and their kits, you agree that this one was scratch built?
