I apologize for posing this question because it must have been adressed before, but I'm new to this group. I would like to sratch build a supercub-like experimental plane. Can anyone recommend a supplier of plans and any parts sush as wing kits, etc. Being rather large in stature, I am interested in a widened fuselage from the stock PA-18. Your advise is most appreciated. Wendel

Look for the Northland CD, All the cub blueprints you could want. There are many kit's available from outfits like Smith
& Dakota cub
but if you want experimental, as in different, you would most likely have to look into making your own mods of the Northland plans or go for an alternative such as the NorthStar http://www.motel-ste-agathe.com/northstar/northstar_english/index.html or
Bearhawk Patrol (very roomy but is not a SC copy = higher cruise speed)
Depends what you want the plane to do. If you are looking for the same "Look & Feel" as a SC then go for the Smith kits or the NorthStar otherwise theres alot of similar aircraft with their own plus's & minus's
