Or all three... I bought the 74" Slick, the 75" Edge and the 74" Laser...Love all three of them. But..of course they are not the big one.

Looks pretty scale to me. The canopy is a little stretched as well as the cowl but still looks pretty damn close.

I think that's a Z200.

That is correct. The laser is a highly modified aircraft built from Stephens Akro plans. What you will really find interesting is that the Walter Extra was based on the Laser z200 layout. The Laser was the first of its kind and set the stage for some awesome aerobatic aircraft including the Edge 540. Zivko and Leo were good friends and the Laser was the bases for the Edge design. The Laser has such a rich history and is an awesome airplane.

Here's the Extra-230... you can see the laser influence in the design of that airplane.

Leo and Zivko worked together on the Shark after that. Full flying compound stabs, dorsal fin, this would be a very cool model:

I would love to see a model of the Stephens Akro with the original bubble canopy. I'm not aware that anyone did one other than the old Pilot, EZ/MK company. Really that's quite amazing considering that it was the plane started the whole mono wing aerobatic craze.

The canopy is very similar to the canopy on Leo's plane on page #1. His canopy was stretched out and streamlined more than the standard bubble. I am not sure if there where ever two identical lasers or not?
