Several years ago I built a free plan model Bostonian out ofone the magazines at the time. It was a high wing plane with a “Y” shaped tail. I know that’s pretty obscure, but was hoping someone might have an idea where or even what I was on about....... Rich

Perhaps the Beancraft Banana?

Perhaps this one - "Sweet Patootie" by Jim Longstreth, from the June 2001 Flying Models?  He also did a more squared-off one called the "Windindicator".

I once built a 36” enlargement of this plane, used a gear prop drive from MRC and a bunch of rubber. Flew fantastic right up till the motor crushed the fuselage LOL

Sounds like a pretty neat project you had there; the "Banana" is an all-around good performer.  The BeanBox bostonian is also very good, our local FF gang had a one design fly-off  and a couple did!
