    1s Damage Resistant Wooden Cub (finished project)

    A little while back I had the idea to turn a crashed T-28 S into a new plane. The T-28 was turned into packing foam after meeting with a brick wall. So I stripped the electrics and bought a new gear box (old one was in 3 peices) I soon decided on a damage resistant cub. Easy to build from...

    Improve the FT Simple Cub

    I'd like to see the addition of a mock engine similar to the one on the Sportster. I tried to copy it but that one is too big for the cub.

    PA-14 Family Cruiser 1/10 scale

    Among the several aircraft in the Cub family the PA-14 Family Cruiser was the first 4 seat production aircraft built by Piper Aircraft.
