byron or Ziroli AT6 texan?

hi everyone a friend of mine gave me this texan he does not know either and I'm a bit confuse maybe somebody can help me identify the manufacture ,the plans are Ziroli 4 sheets and in the cowl there's a note that reads byron ,now byron I think they build them with a green color fiberglass
and Ziroli I'm not sure they did not build fiberglas fuse planes ,again i'm not sure about this ..
So my question is who manufacture this plane ?maybe some other manufacture?
I have to make sure before starting to look for the wings and elevator parts that they are actually missing from it
thanks for any info in advance.

Yes, Byron and Yellow kits all used blue/green Polyester resin, it has a very distinctive chemical smell when sanded,, They both also used the aluminium bars for wing attachment

That looks like Epoxy resin, so??

There were several guys making Fuselages back in the day when they were racing them in Giant Scale competition, Saxton was one also . That could be one of his,,, The carbon fiber reinforcement makes me thing it's a racer, You could try and ask in the Giant Scale racing forum

Wish I could pin point it for you,, but that's all I got,, good luck

p.s.
They were all the same size,, 1/5th scale,, working from those Ziroli plans will be fine

That must be one of the T-6 racer kits. The visible airfoil on the wing center section is not what Ziroli uses so its not a Ziroli kit. It almost looks like the cowl doesn't mate to that fuselage though it might be just the photo.

Cowl looks normal, they don't fit flush to the fuse

here's a shot of my Yellow to compare

I have a 95 year old friend who was just given the green AT6 Byron kit that has everything but the manual. If any of you have a manual you could copy he would be happy to reimburse you the cost of making the manual and shipping. Yes, 95 years old and still flies the big gassers. And loves to build.
Thanks
Bob
