    N258JP is Finished!

    I'm happy to report that after 15 years, 5000 hours of free time, 5 moves, 3 career changes, 2 degrees, a little blood, and a lot of sweat that I have finally finished my replica Super Cub.

    I have gleaned an incalculable amount of information from this site and its members. Many thanks to you all!

    That looks absolutely gorgeous! You should be very proud of your work. And I love the panel! So neat and "clean" and highly functional.

    Incredible! Awesome pictures of the process on your website. Curious where you purchased the cub specific parts that you did not fabricate?

    Thanks aecub! Which parts specifically are you refering to?

    Off of the top of my head: The wing spars are from D&E, wheels and brakes are Grove, master cylinders are stock Scotts that I purchased on ebay and rebuilt, tail wheel is Matco, trim jackscrew, yoke and pulleys are stock from Univair, Most harware and materials came from Spruce. Someday I'll add up all the shipping costs and calculate how much fuel it would buy to see how many times around the world I could fly it

    That’s one of my favorite paint schemes. Looks right. What did it end up weighing?

    That's very helpful. It's interesting to see what resources each builder uses. I'm starting a wing so am focused on spars, drag wires, flap bellcrank, pulleys. Didn't see any pictures on your website but did you make the center rib sections similar to the nose rib sections (forming over a template)?

    Yes the center sections were formed the same way as the nose ribs. I think I just forgot to take pics of those.

    Thank you for posting all of those pictures on your website. It is super helpful to see concrete examples of some fabrication steps as we all tackle little related projects. Great work, and beautiful airplane!
