    Goldberg 40 Piper Cub window help

    I am finishing a partially built Carl Goldberg 40 size piper cub and need to know if the side windows are supposed to fit flush with the outside of the airframe or are they inset? Any help appreciated, thanks. John

    Nice build!

    Most I have seen have the windows somewhat recessed. I believe it would look better more ore less flush. That will of course take more effort but it apears you are no stranger to a little extra effort.

    Almost flush but due to the doubler {as I recall} they sit a little too far inside. Good luck with that {as I recall thing?} I will have to go over and look at the last one I built to be sure.

    Just cut away the outer right-angle flashing, then you can position them flush or to suit.
    I might not be very good, but I am fun to watch!
