Sorry, no answer for you, but I would post your question and picture in the "Clubhouse" forum. You'll get a whole lot more responses me thinks.

That cub is a beauty.

Good luck

.
There's a 1/2 scale Piper L4 on p. 104 of the new MA (10/10). I've also seen half-scale Decathlons and other large planes in other mags. FlyRC, RCSF, and RCMW are good sources. I agree, beautiful bird! Good luck.
