This great almost ready to fly large-scale Piper PA-18 Super Cub has an enormous one hundred and six -inch wingspan (269cm) and a host of scale features and details that enhance the overall scale look of the model.
A great deal of attention to scale fidelity and scale features ensures that the Cub not only looks great, but that it flies great as well! Its lightweight rugged airframe is constructed entirely from top quality balsa and laser-cut plywood parts resulting in an accurate rugged airframe that is then finished in a typical PA-18 scale colour scheme using Ultracote and the scale look is further enhanced by the addition of a pre-painted fibreglass cowl with moulded panel lines, fully functioning landing gear with bungee suspension, scale Piper Cub “balloon” wheels and quick fit airfoil shaped folding aluminum wing struts for ease of assembly and transport. Of particular note is the attention to detail that replicates the tubular construction of the full-size at the top/rear of the fuselage and also the scale fin to fuselage fillet detail as these are areas that often look wrong on many large Cub models.
Thanks to its generous wingspan and light wing loading the model has superb slow speed flight characteristics and is capable of taking off and landing at realistic scale speeds with the fully functional landing gear soaking up any bumps.
A comprehensive hardware pack, crystal clear windows and fully illustrated assembly guide make getting this Cub into the air easy, and the two-piece wing with easy-fit fold flat wing struts and bolt on two-piece tail make transporting this large model to the flying field even easier.
