    It's sort've amusing to me to see a guy with a PA-18 95 or a PA-11 do whatever he can to make his plane more like a 150hp super cub, but at the same time, every person i know that has a 150 or 180hp...

    I don't necessarily care for the look of the windows, but to me, it wouldn't be worth all the work involved to change them. I actually think it would look pretty good if you put a black stripe from...

    The problem with most a PA-11, J-3, and most fabric covered planes, is that it costs about the same to restore them as it does a super cub, but at the end if the rebuild it's not a $150,000 Super...

    From what I've seen, a good, low to mid-time PA-11 with 10 year old fabric, with a C90 sells in the 45-50k range. There are some exceptions that I've seen go for 60, but the ones with an asking...

    I would imagine it would be at least 40 hours of labor. Might be able to find a set of stock flaps that are already covered, that would save some time. I'd think that flaps would add at least 10k...

    I know of a couple 'flying projects' that could be had for under 40k. Not the prettiest planes at the fly-in, but airworthy.

    Another option to think about is if you're already open to the idea of building a super cub, but don't necessarily want to be grounded until it's finished, is to buy a PA-11 or PA-18 95 and fly it...

    What RedOwl said...
    Don't make it more complicated than it needs to be. Inspect the plane thoroughly, if it checks out, buy it. That simple.

    No point in wearing out a set of Airstreaks while you're learning to fly a tailwheel. Stick with the 8.00's for now. I agree with the previous comments, absolutely no need for a baby bushwheel...
