Default Help identify my big Cub...

I have a nice big Cub, and I am trying to identify who made the kit that it was built from. I think the Cub is maybe 5 to 10 years old. The wing is full size, not clipped, and measures approx 90 inches. I would like to replace the plastic cowl, which was made up from several molded plastic pieces, with a sturdy fiberglass cowl. Identifying the maker of the kit would help greatly in researching the old plans, etc etc. Thanks for the help. Let me know what measurements you need to know to make a good identification.

I had all sorts of info here for ya and then I re-read your post. I was guessing on the wingspan but you said what it was so I deleted all of that.

The Goldberg Cub is around 78 inches and the Sig 1/4 scale is 108" as is the Balsa USA.

Default Great Planes

Went through this a month ago on a cub rebuild (still working on it) but out of the 12 I had researched the only one with 90" WS was the Great Planes the next at 84.5" was Sig.

Mine ended up being a World models ARF 104" WS, but the only way I could tell the difference was the side windows and the width of the firewall.

hope this helps

Default Thanks DCFLYER

I really appreciate your help identifying my Cub. Now it'll be easier to locate the plans, and a nice fiberglas cowl to replace the plastic one. Best of luck to you on your project.
