After all the talk about rib stitching I did some more searching and found some pics from my build of the 33% Cub showing the rib stitching and tapes. I was working under a deadline to get the Cub flown for a review and thouhgt I would save some time and cover the plane with Cub Yellow Solartex. It didn't save me much time at all. The Solartex was way too transparent for my taste. I wound up spraying 3 coats of color matched latex paint over the entire plane after the rib stitching and tapes were applied.

For those who have not visited CubMan's web sire it is a must see for any Cub builder. [link=http://www.thecubden.org/]Cub Den[/link]

Here are a few pics from my Cub build. You can see the tapes applied to the fuse as well as over the ribs and tail surfaces. The panel was made from 1/8" ply and instruments from InZpan.

Anthony,
Do you still use the same recipe for mixing the latex paint that you used on the clipped-wing cub build ?
 
Thanks, R.L.

The paint used on my Red and White Clipped wing was Behr Semi-Gloss Latex. The red color was called Grenadine. It was from a color chip in Home Depot where I had the paint mixed. I just went and checked and the paint can has been discarded that had the remaining paint from the build. I usually save the mix sticker but since the plane was lost I pitched it. It was a good looking and flying plane and I do miss it.

Cub Man,
I noticed that brother # 26 & # 31 appear to be the same guy. If so I volunteer to fall in the # 31 spot to keep the remaining numbers correct.
If this is not kosher  just tack me on to the bottom of the list.

So this is a fuel proof paint in your experience?

Gas not glow.
If you go glow you will have to clear coat as I did with Nelson's Hobby Specialties clear. I now fly only gas and the latex holds up well to gas.

It is the AMR kit, I having fun with it. I admit that I am a s-l-o-w builder. My buddy came over and looked it over and ordered one also. I told him OK, just do my color scheme. I'm now setting up the engine. I'm using a DLE 55. I'm going with a second firewall. The second will hold the engine, do to the stand offs, I found some countersunk 5 mm bolts that will go into the 2nd firewall, then bolt it to the first with 1/4-20 cap screws with blind nuts. That way I can remove the engine without having to get to the backside of the firewall and unbolt the motor.
Later,
Randy

You will love how the plane fly's.
I noticed you have the cardboard tube for the tail servo leads attached to the bottom of the fuse top formers. Is this in the manual or just a preference change by you? The reason I am asking is I built one of the 1st kits and the manual had the tube mounted in the bottom of the fuse and I moved it to the top to allow more room for the rudder pull/pull and suggested this change to AMR.
All in all it was an excellent build and it is rock solid in the air.

Anthony, due to the expence of stits over latex. And the limited color selection. Help me out with the latex. I know it has to be thinned. Once that has been established, does it spray well and how is the coverage. I know you have used MEK based, how does the finish compare?
The only reason I ask is there is two guy's at my field that uses latex and their finish look's really (in place of a bad word) thick.

I talked to you in the spring, AMR still wants it on the bottom, I took your advice and moved it to the top. I also reinforced the tail area. I can post a better picture if you want to see it. I'm planning to use Hitec HS-645 thru out. I see they want a 300 oz monster for the rudder. Did you do that or go with a smaller servo for the rudder?
Thanks,
Randy

Robert,
I have painted several planes with Latex and have not had any issues. I thin it 30-40% with cheap blue windshield washer fluid and add an ounce of Floetrol to each qt. of mix. Different colors will require a different thinning ratio. It usually takes 3-4 thin coats of paint for coverage. The only plane I did not use latex on was my 25% Waco and it was painted with Krylon spray paint. The Krylon is a bit more glossy than the latex.

Randy,
Sorry I didn't make the connection. I used a 645 on the rudder and there are no issues. The springs for the tail wheel take all the load off of the servo from the tail wheel and the surface area of the rudder does not require that much torque especially from a full wing Cub.
Later!!
Anthony

so i'm curious... i'm looking on robart's site at the landing gear they have for the 1/5 scale cub, and it says the gear will not fit the 90" GP cub kit or the Siganniversary 1/5 scale kit. i'm pretty sure i've seen the gear on theSig kit before... am i seeing things? they state the gear is for up to a 5 1/8" wide fuselage. i'm looking to get the gear for my GP .40 size kit, afteri measure it and it's okay, but i'm also looking at maybe selling it and getting the Siganniversarykit, since the more i look, i like it better and wish i would have in the first place. will the robart gear fit on the anniversary kit from Sig? what's the purpose of getting a kit with all that detail and the door and window opening and using wire for the landing gear?

Crash, I think you are confusing kits.
The Goldberg is advertised at the anniversary kit. The Sig 1/5 is scale and I would think the Robart 1/5 scale gear would fit. The Goldberg Anniversary Cub is far from scale. I used the Robart 1/4 gear on my Sig 1/4 Cub and they fit great and performed very well.

Mind you I have no experience with the Sig 1/5 kit so maybe some who has built this combination will step in and report on it.
Later!!

Just ordered my gear yesterday from the "Cub Nut". Got an e-mail today saying it would be about 10 days to two weeks. He'll make to to fit the width of your fuse.
