I'm thinking the most distinctive feature of this model which would help identify it is the tailplane location - half way up the fin

I had an Eros once. The short nose and heavy tail were probably responsible for most church roof repair funds being initiated.

wrong tense Jim, I sold mine to Paul at Kingfisher a couple of years ago. Don's looks to have a one piece wing rather than the original plug in panels and the tailplane is fixed with proper elevators and no separate upper fin, a straight 3 channel build from the start. Mine was a bit of a porker owing to me getting carried away with the paint but it was still overpowered with an OS 48 fourstroke.

1947 design iirc Jim, it's got a 6 year head start on me laugh. There were some really elegant designs floating around post-WW2 that put the ubiquitous Junior 60s to shame.
