    Bushwacker Aircraft

    Hey folks, I am starting to research different options for building or restoring a PA-18-95. I started to do this 3 years ago but I got sidetracked building a Zenith 750. A great plane, just not a...

    Hey Cubdriver, You responded to me way back in 2015. I decided that my need for a "Cub Like" airplane could be achieved with a Zenith 750. So, 3 years later, the Zenith fly's like a dream, climbs...

    Wing Kit

    Does anyone have any knowledge (good or bad) about one of the first wing kits, called "Bear Wing Kit". Any experience or history using their kit would be appreciated.
    Thanks.

    PA-11 or PA-18-95 or Modified J-3

    I need advise. I just can't seem to pull the trigger on this. I go from "ready to order", to I don't want to make a huge mistake, again. My choices range from a Wag Aero Sport Trainer, to a Legend...

    J-3 boot cowl and engine cowl on a PA-18

    If I were building an experimental PA-18, would stock J-3 cowling fit, especially the boot cowl ? I really like the look of the J-3. To build an experimental Cub, using a standard width PA-18...

    Legend kit vs Roll your own kit.

    [QUOTE=MainlandCub;629589]I'm gonna register another vote for the PA-18 top deck. Cutting the spars back won't be much of a problem, adding material on is the thing that has most of us stumped.

    That is good news to me. So all PA-18's have the adjustable front seat? With it all the way aft, there was a ton of legroom. Were the PA18-95 SC's built from J-3 parts? I'm guessing that Piper must...

    1949 pa-18

    The 1949 Super Cub is exactly what I am looking for. I actually love the room-performance-ansd simplicity of my J-3. In the summer, it's basically a 1.5 place airplane. I think a non-electrical, no...

    Everyone, thanks. Can anyone answer my question about using wag aero wing kit, with the front spar shortened? I'm pretty much convinced to go 18 top deck, but use j3 wings.

    Restoration or Experimental?

    I'm quite sure this has been asked many times before, but here goes: While I love my J-3, I long for something that is a little more comfortable for my passenger. The front seat in the Cub is just...
