Question Carl Goldberg Anniversary Cub

I just picked up a CG Anniversary Piper Cub. However, it needs a new main gear and wing struts. Anyone have any suggestions where I can look? Thanks.

The struts were made from balsa, and are not functional. You can fly without them, or they can easily be made by the average modeler.

The original Goldberg landing gear was week. "Sqautty Cubs" were a familiar sight when these models were popular at my field.

New gear could be bent from 1/8" wire, or maybe landing gear from a different, similar sized Cub could be adapted.

Sig offers a 1/4, 1/5 and 1/6 scale cubs. Replacement landing gear is available for all of them for less than $15. Maybe you can get the LG from them if you're not into bending your own.
