Build-Up Kits

If you’ve got the time, own a modelling knife, can read a plan and have a tube of glue tucked away somewhere, you too can become one of the air modelling Brethren. You certainly can’t beat the feeling of spending weeks hunched over your plan building your own creation. The rush of adrenaline and elation when your aircraft takes to the air for the first time, quickly followed by the feeling of hopelessness and despair as your aircraft takes a turn for the worst…. And finally the long walk back to the club house with your black bag in hand…. Yes Modelling why do we do it ?

In 1969 Hazel Sig, when President of Sig Mfg. Co., rebuilt a standard 1941 Piper J-3 Cub for airshow flying. To increase the plane's aerobatic performance, 40 inches were clipped off each wing panel and the engine was reworked for greater horsepower.

Wingspan 56 in 1422 mm
Wing Area 557 in² 36 dm²
Radio Required 4-Channel
.25 - .40 in³ (4 - 6.5 cm³)
.40 - .45 in³ (6.5 - 7.3 cm³)

The result is a highly aerobatic Cub that is a real joy to fly! Smooth aileron rolls, snap rolls, immelmann turns, and many other rolling maneuvers which are difficult in a standard wing J-3, are easy with the Clipped Wing Cub. This 1/6-scale model inherits all of the delightful flight characteristics of Hazel's full-scale Clipped Wing Cub.
