Help Identify an Old Model Airplane

Do you know what this model is?

The man in this picture is Bill McCoy and the photo was taken around 1943 in Ingram, PA.  Bill’s son Jim is hoping someone out there can identify the model airplane in the picture, as Jim would like to build an RC version in memory of his dad.
