    I built this back in the 80's, it hung around at my parents house for years. No idea where the wing went so I bought one. Going to get this in the air and train my boys to fly.

    Mostly I felt like gluing something. I've been on the Cub landing gear a long time.

  5. The Eagle or Kadet were the trainers of choice back in the 80's. How things have changed.

    Like what you are doing. But the fuselage looks like it is going to be more work than what it is worth, and if oil soaked that makes it even more difficult. Why would you not get the fuselage as well. It will probably be quicker to build a new fuselage than trying to fix the old one. Just my observation looking at the pictures.

    I crashed that plane several times and flew it every time after the repair, even in the condition it's in. Just the feeling of reflying a 30+ yr old plane is all I'm looking for.
