Default Sig or BUSA Cub?

Couldn't find a kit building forum so thought I'd try this forum. Would like to build 1/4 scale Cub and wonder if anyone might have an opinion on Sig vs Balsa USA kit. Thanks in advance.

There's a kit building forum in the airplanes section. Just scroll down a ways.

Did both some 30 years ago. From what I remember the Sig was easier than the BUSA but the BUSA kit was a much nicer and better designed kit. When they were side by side everyone was much more impressed with the BUSA.

I haven't built the Balsa USA cub but have built 3 different Sig 1/4 scale kits. The yellow j-3 has over 450 flights and the l-4 has around 50 flights

Sig kit built and crashed in mid 1980s
