I think everyone is ignoring you Sonny. devil If you include a link or screenshot of the model you are referring to it might illicit a better response. Most suppliers seem to be sold out if that is the model you are referring to?

Trouble is Sonny, there's a glut of foamie Cubs around the 50 to 60 odd inch span. Kits for a Cub of this size are unlikely to sell in huge numbers, given today's fever for *buy today fly tomorrow*.

One tried, tested and fully proven one is the DB Sport & Scale Cub. A bit bigger at 80 odd inch, although the wing is in two parts which makes transport and storage more convenient...... It's a reasonably involved project though Sonny, so maybe not ideal if you haven't built too many models previously.

This is the Perkins JP Cub, at Steve Webb's, same price as your kit Sonny

But it is built and covered ARTF

**LINK**

Like Percy says, its difficult to spend more on bits and build time than a quick fix in a box

But the thing is Denis, with a kit build you end up with a far more individual model than an artf. And there's the pride factor too, as it flies past you.

Absolutely none of which matters one jot to some.......... indecision

Looking at the links it looks exactly the same as the hobbyking model i built which was an easy pleasant build but lacked scale detail which would add weight and additional cost , my is electric . Happy building
