Guillow's Piper Super Cub 95 Build

Seeing as Pilot JS won the HF free flight airplane build off and for his prize Pilot DS bought him a Guillow's Piper Super Cub 95 -- Pliot JS decided he can no longer wait to begin building. This is his first model build using balsa and monokote. He aims to do just a little every day and take his time and care.

Recommendations from a novice modelist: (1) read all instructions completely before beginning build, (2) study the balsa wood die cut shapes before putting a knife to it, (3) using an Xacto blade trace along the die cut very carefully twice before removing each peice, (4) handle the model VERY carefully, and (5) take your time and care. Be patient. Do a little each day so that the experience remains positive and you avoid frustration.

So far the build is coming along not perfect, but nicely and the fuselage is completed. Pilot JS will continue to post photos of the build and will review his first flight. The estimated build time is 20 hours. Pilot JS has not decided if he will use a gas, electric, or rubber band power yet.
