Cool SIG J-3 1/4 kit build

Hello fellow hobbyist and pilots! I hope this message finds you well. I will be starting a kit soon, a 1/4 J-3 from SIG. I have been browsing this website for years and have decided to share this build with you all (or some). I have been out of the hobby for a few years now but have had the luck and chance to "stock" up on kits. This will be the second kit I will build, the fish one being a 1/6 (?) Citabria from SIG. Other future projects include building; a 1/4 SIG J-3 Clipped wing, a dynaflite Super Decahlon 89" WS, a 1/4 Bud Nosen Citabria 105" WS, a PICA 1/5 P-51, a topflite 1/5 P-51B, a PICA 1/5 P-40 Warhawk, a Hostetler Skymaster 119" WS, and a Royal DC-3! GOD HELP ME!

Back to the original post, I am looking to build this J-3 (and the clipped wing) with a 3 piece wing, and a fully functional door, I have a 1/5 J-3 from SIG that my father left me and would like the same set up. So, I would greatly appreciate it if you guys can chip in some help and ideas, any tips and recommendations would be great. I will be building this kit to (hopefully) fly it with a Saito FG-21 4 stroke engine.

Thank you in advance and I hope you all have a great day.

Andre

For anyone building the SIG 1/4 CUB in any variation, this thread is a good read. Lots of good ideas.

Thanks Truckracer! I have that build thread added to my faves. Definitely lots of tips and detailed information on the conversion and build. Lots of details. One of my "go-to" build threads for sure!

Default Clipped Wing 1/4 Cub thread

Andres, You have a nice stash of Kits.
A discussion about threads for the Cub/Clipped Wing Cub is not complete without a reference to this one.
