Default Need help with ID of vintage RC plane

I was hoping someone could help me identify this vintage RC plane. I believe it to be the first RC aircraft ever fitted for insecticide spraying and I would like to recreate it as a museum piece.

Here is the only information I have on it.

Made by Major Model Manufacturing, Smithtown, NY
5 ft fuselage
7.5 ft wingspan
tricycle landing gear with nose wheel coupled to rudder
picture is from 1972

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Greg

Maybe you could contact the municipality, the company probably no longer exist but there must be some record at City hall:

Also its not electric powered, other forums to check:

Does your picture come from a magazine?

Default Mystery Solved

Well sort of...The plane was made by Nick Ziroli. It was a one-off built just for that project. No plans exist.
