In celebration of our Golden Anniversary, we are ecstatic to introduce the latest addition to our line of high quality Build It Yourself airplane kits: the 1/5 Scale J-3 Piper Cub.

We've put everything we've learned about model airplanes into this special kit: scale details, Sig laser cut parts, full size plans, a comprehensive instruction booklet.

All the features you've come to expect from Sig.

Wingspan 84.5 in 2146 mm
Wing Area 947 in? 61.1 dm?
Weight 7 lb 3175 g
Length 55.25 in 1403 mm
Radio Required 4-Channel, 5 Servos
Engines .40 - .46 in? (6.5 - 7.5 cm?) 2-Stroke
.45 - .65 in? (7.5 - 10.7 cm?) 4-stroke

Then we added a little something special. The new 1/5 Scale J-3 Piper Cub is so real, you may have a hard time separating it from the 1930's full size airplane. All of the details are included - a working side door and window, dummy engine cowls with "eyebrows",scale-like wire landing gear, a fully detailed instrument panel... even the realistic "bird's eye-view" window on top of the cabin. Add in a full decal sheet including Cub lightning bolts and you have a Cub standing far above the rest.
