    Sig Kadet wing kit

    Just starting to get back into building. I inherited a Kadet Senior (missing wings) when my dad passed away, so
    I ordered a wing kit from Sig and am a little reluctant to build it without plans. Can anyone help?

    I just happen to know of a Sr. wing that's probably available right now. Take a look at ~~Sig Kadet Brotherhood~~. - last page, toward the bottom.

    Just curious since you already ordered the wing kit. Does not the wing kit include the single sheet plans for the wing? With the full kit the plans two part with a wing sheet and the fuselage sheet.

    John, I just finished building a wing for a Kadet Senior for a friend and the wing kit from Sig does include the plans.

    Thanks JP, so there ya go Wch40 you can relax and wait for your kit to arrive. Framing up a Cadet wing goes very fast.

    Mine did not include plans. I just called Siog and they told me the plans are $10.99 extra. (The wing kit was $38.00)

    I'm wondering if Sig simply goes out and throws stuff in a box when someone orders a fuse kit or a wing kit and sometimes they don't include exactly the same items? I also ordered a fuse kit for a Four Star Forty from them and it came less a canopy. A fuse kit without a canopy seems strange. I also looked at a fuse kit for a Sig Somethin' Extra and it includes not only the fuse but also the tail assembly. So there doesn't seem to be much standardization in their sub assembly kits. My Katet wing kit came in a plain white box with the description written on it in ball point pen. Maybe the guy who packed my Kadet wing kit assumed it was supposed to include plans so he threw them in. Really don't know.
