FG Piper Cub tutorial

Wad Cutter a fellow member is having trouble building the Fiddlers Green Cub so I decided to do a tutorial on how to build it.

I have already finished the wings.

Is the build essentially the same for any of the sizes?

Tim, I thought I had it but still I don't. The wings came out just fine but the center wing section is unclear. My wing looks just like yours from the top but it's hoe you treat the underneath of the CWS. Do you remove all the card with in the window and the picture of of the Piper Cub leaving the yello of the edge? Sorry to be so stupid. I just don't understand. I might be best if I post some photos of my own. wc/waddy

I'm sorry W.C. but I can only see images done through the manage attachments thing. V.K. I shrunk the large B&W model to 50% so that I save card stock and ink. It is a little more difficult to build but still fun.

Got the fuselage nearly completed I glued the part for the windows to the inside of the fuselage. I also added the wing profile to it so that it covers up the open part of the wings.

When I look at your I see the top of the cabin removed. I just don't understand why and how much to cut or do I go ahead and glue the top of the cabin. Thank you Jr. waddy/john
