Default Need a Cub windshield...

I have Cub that was a kit I think and I can't figure out which one. It's wider than my Goldberg Cub and Hangar 9. The top of it where it slides into the wing is 5 1/4" wide the others are around 5 or slightly more. Anyone have any idea how to find out what I have or where to get a windshield? Thanks for any suggestions. By the way the span is 81" or so.

Jim,

My Cubs (larger scale) have all had flat plastic bent to form the windshield. Get some card stock, like poster board, and start cutting a pattern, if you want to try this approach.

Have fun!

Thanks, a hobby shop suggested that too but on this one it tucks up under and then rolls over the top which is part of the leading edge of the wing in the center. So the one I ordered from Hangar 9 when I thought that was what it was is about 1/4 inch too narrow. Been cutting out the top edges of it hoping to make it work, but it's not.

Thanks,
Jim
