Default Has anyone bought/built a New Sig 1/4 Cub recently?

I have an 20 year old kit which a guy is biting my arm off to buy.
Now the old kits have a lot of parts that are marked on block balsa that nearly need to be run through a band saw.
Anyone know if the modern kits are less "rustic" ?
So I could let this one go and get a modern one later

New kits are exactly the same as your 20 year old one, all you'd be getting is fresher wood..... I have many Sig kits, new and old..

I just recently finished my Sig 1/4 Cub. Was a lot of work but the end results is a great flying plane. Here is my build thread.

Thanks SDP
Mine is the clipped wing version with a one piece wing which wont fit in the car.
Have you come across a thread where someone converts it to a two piece job?

You could make the wing 2 peice with the use of a wing tube like the 1/5 SIG Cub.

Converted mine to a three piece, and to a Super Cub. The mods are pretty easy to do. You can use the wing tube or do something similar to what I did. Tried to upload photos without success, so here is a link. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...1513774&page=4
