High all, I am trying to get any info I can on a HLG made by Testors, this glider had a very unusual dihedral almost 90 degrees, but it did fly good.

Are you referring to the small gliders with red plastic coupler. Those are North Pacific.
The really old Testors are trimmed to look like a P-80, that one? I think they were in two colors, red and blue.

The glider I am talking about was a kit like the THERMIC 20, this glider had a dowel though the body so you could use two fingers to launch the plane.
