I think I know all the KK range. You should have posted a scan.

The KK Sportster is a little all-sheet beginners model, 18" span.
A bit like a beginner's rubber powered chuck glider.
Pre-cut and pre-coloured balsa sheet. Sounds unlikely to me (pre-coloured balsa in white???).

Concerning other "Sportsters", be advised that a search for "Sportster" on Outerzone gives 60 results...

If you look at the shape of the kk sportster and the" kk sportster plus" it seems there have been several iterations on the original ,the shape looks the same I know the original was a kk ezi build for rubber

Thanks for the suggestions, I think that it's a home brew using sportster wing and tail planforms with a profile fuselage.

I think that is what is called a ’Sportsternezer’ a Ebenezerised Sportster.

I haven't seen the current issue of RCM&E yet, could this be the model ?
It's a scaled up copy of the outline of the Keil Kraft Sportster which was probably inspired by this original 1940 Keelbild MS Sportster.

It's an Ebenezer model based on the KK Sportster, designed by Dave Ridgeway and published in Model Flyer January 2006.
