I was given 2 1/3 Cub airframes that were in very bad condition. I was told that I must throw them away if not usable. I started stripping the covering of the worst aiframe and found that it had never been flown. The Cubs had been used by a companny a numer of years ago to assist with anti Rhino poaching operations. They were used in a very humid area tht affected the wood and glue joints. The plastic covering was stripped off and the wooden structure was painted with a 2k paint. The structures had been badly sanded and then covered with a fabric which was also badly done. I needed a large airframe to test motors and I had quite a lot of covering which is like Sig coverall that needed to be tested so this was a good oppotunity. I am also a person who does not like to throw airframes away and enjoy bringing them back to life.cub fuselage.jpgcub left wing.jpgcub tail surfaces.jpgcub wing.jpg
