Default 1/3rd scale high wing / G-62 powered

Hello all, I need some help and ideas for my winter project. I have a G-62 sitting here and need a large high wing plane for it. I'd like to build from plans instead of kit.
The plane needs to be easy to fly but can be fun and wild when I want. ( I flown 4.2 powered twin, Extra 300, and many giant war birds, but its time for a change)
Some thoughts were Taylor Craft, Christen Husky, J3 Cub,??? What is available in the 130-140 inch span, and are fiberglass cowls available?? Thanks for your input.

RC Modeler Plans service has a 141" 33% Aeronca Champ. A G62 would be perfect. Fiberglass cowl and windscreen are available.

Brent has a nice build on his website of it as well http://www.aviationstation.net/aeroncapage1.html

Look at the Bob Nelitz Taylorcraft, it is around your size range (a bit small at 112" span) and reportedly beautifully drawn and flies very well.
