Great Planes Cub is an aviation classic recreated in 3 great sizes.
Great Planes has taken their computer designed technology and penchant for scale accuracy to new dimensions, with a complete series of kits based on one of the most popular aircraft designs of all time - the Piper J-3 Cub. With 3 sizes to choose from, there's a Cub kit to suit any modeler's tastes and budget.

All three sizes share the benefits of Great Planes' advanced engineering, resulting in models that are amazingly easy to build and fly. And with scale outlines taken from original Piper 3-view drawings, these kits boast a very realistic Cub profile, with incredible attention to detail.

All 3 Great Planes Cub kits feature computer-designed and drawn plans, interlocking die-cut wood parts and straight, strong structures. Building is further simplified by preshaped leading edges, pushrod routing holes and virtually all-balsa exteriors. The 40- and 60-size Cubs feature barndoor ailerons; the 20-size has strip ailerons.

Includes: All the wood to build the kit, photo illustrated instruction manual, full size rolled plans, clear canopy and side windows, ABS cowl and dummy engine, adjustable nylon engine mount, pre-bent aluminum main landing gear, pre-bent tailwheel wire, hardware bag and pushrods.
