Default What kind of cub do I have?

thought it was a Hangar 9 40 size so I ordered a windshield for it and I have another and at top of windshield where the wing slides up against it it's approx. 5 3/8 " wide or maybe 5 1/4". My other one is 5" wide. I guess I'll just cut this one and make it fit but sure would like to know what kind I have and possibly order a correct one. Or I guess I could try to mold a 2 liter around it and make my own. Never tried that before. I do have a good heat gun. BTY wingspan is 80 1/2 or 81". Bought it some time ago and hope to get it in the air.

thanks,
Jim

I built this Goldberg Cub back in the 80s and really enjoyed the kit, I did add the side stringer any my Cousin turned it into a Super Cub. She is still around in my room and doing well, built with Elmers Glue All and Epoxy where needed.
I would like to build another and see that Great Planes now sells this kit and it is laser cut. How does this updated laser cut Cub compare to the old Die Cut Cub?

I have had two Goldberg cubs. Both Die stamped. I will say the second one was off on the ply parts so much the wing was off 1.5 deg. Luckley I noticed it did not light up on the plans

I didn't notice any issues with the two die cut Goldberg Cubs, that I've built. The parts required a little dressing, but it was no big deal.

Looking on line the laser cut version does look pretty crisp compared to the die cut kits.

I used my Tower Hobbies coupon and bought the laser cut version of this kit. It showed up today, fast shipping and I am impressed with the laser cut parts. I must say the parts are much nicer than what I had with mold Goldberg Cub from the 80s.

I picked up a 1/4 scale BUSA cub kit for my next build. I was wondering if anyone has used the H9 cub landing gear and wing struts on one of these planes? The H9 landing gear is about 1/2 the price of robart. I built the sig 1/4 scale cub about 10 years ago and I used K&S tubing for the struts. They turned out ok but were a pain to make.

Check the dimensions, but I believe that the Hangar Nine gear is too narrow, more suitable for the Sig Cub.

you can buy the Hangar 9 Cub struts separately. The part number is HAN4562. It comes with all the fittings and attachments etc. I am currently using a set on a Nosen Citabria 1/4 scale. Little pricey at $90 but all inclusive. You will need some blind nuts for the jury strut wing attachment mounts as well as strut fittings on outboard of each wing panel. I got some at local ACE hardware. You may want to replace the jury strut vertical pieces with 3/16 brass tubing for a more authentic look. The H9 ones have a lot to be desired IMO. Search the web for the "kit". There is a variety of places you can order. Horizon says due in March.

Good luck with build

The H9 struts are expensive but so is the K&S Streamline Tubing about $10 for one 35"and you need 4 plus end fittings and shipping. Tower sells 4 for $20.69 but says order pending. H9 has the PA18 struts in stock for $90 but does not include the attachment mounts and fittings to get those you have to buy the hardware kit for another $60. I'll see what I can find at the Swap Meets this year I wont be starting this till next winter.

I have bought 2 sets but made sure they were reflecting the Cub J-3 with all hardware pictured. I am not sure why they do continue to show a picture of the supercub struts for the basic same price without the hardware. I would imagine the struts are identical other than color.

TomCrump is correct, I bought the Hanger9 gear and it was to narrow for my BUSA Cub.
