I just finished building the 1/6 scale cub from Sig. I am thinking of ordering the 1/5 scale cub as well, but I have one question.Is the 1/5 scale a better kit than the 1/6 ie is the elevator made of laminated 1/8 balsa, are there any interlocking parts? Thank you Carl Anderson.
See the L-4 photos in "Models On The Bench" on my web site.
I've also got a pile of detailed photos of a pristine 1:1 L-4 on hand if that would help, given that the notable differences between the L-4 and the Cub are the upper cabin interior and the greenhouse.
There is an adjustable stab implementation in that model, as well as Frise ailerons and stand-pretty-close-scale struts/interplane struts.
Sure wish I'd been able to ask someone how far off scale the Balsa USA
1/3 Cub kit was before I committed VISA felony, but no one came up for air at the time.
The Robart L/G is decidedly scale, and having built the Balsa USA gear, I can heartily recommend spending the money for the Robart item.
