Piper J3 Cub 60 Kit
The popular classic–now with today’s finest model technology!
The original Piper J-3 Cub trainer introduced nearly 75% of World War II aviators to flying. A favorite with scale model builders, the Cub is now available with Great Planes’ unique “computer designed and drawn” engineering — resulting in outstanding scale accuracy and easy kit assembly! An excellent first sport scale kit, the Cub is easy to build and satisfyingly aerobatic, yet stable and easy to land. The nearly all-balsa construction makes finishing easy and provides the best surface for an attractive covering job. The exact scale outline is taken directly from original Piper 3-view drawings. The wing, fuselage, rudder and stabilizer are all in exact proportion to the full-size aircraft. The Cub features realistic “barndoor” ailerons instead of strip ailerons found on other models. The kit also includes all parts and instructions needed to build the powerfully aerobatic “clipped wing” version of the J-3 Cub.
