Tiger 60 ARF Carl Goldberg

I bought a Tiger 60 ARF (Carl Goldberg) from Tower Hobbies last 2005. I though product was not perfect. I leave them 7 years later. I finished 7 models next to Tiger 60 ARF. So finally I work assembly wing halves and fuselage so I look and surprise perfect product. I checked monokote on wing, fuselage, stablizer, and fin. They are good straight and smooth.
I said wow that I put wing halves together excellence fit and no gap! I believe it was made in USA.

I think CG products was excellence job. I still work on Tiger 60 ARF.

Website show you what I bought it. Today still discontinue.

Carl Goldberg was a "great plane" manufacturer but it was taken over by Great Planes and the CG Arfs are not available anymore but some of there kits are labeled under the Great Planes banner.

Cannot comment on the Arf quality but the CG Tiger 60 kit was one of the best kits I ever built.....7 years old now and still going strong as a taildragger.

Thanks.....I broke in a new GMS.76 in this plane originally, then pulled that out to use in another plane. Then I bought a Tower Hobbies .75 for the Tiger and that is what is in her still today. I am glad I went with a .75 size.

I always wanted to build from the plane one of these models, here in Argentina there are no kits or builders who build.
There is the possibility of someone having the plane of the Tiger Tiger 2 or 60, via mail to send it to me to build it?

CG models are great!

My greetings and happy flights!

Thanks Bob: I know that these models are sold in kits and are several stores that sell them. But my idea is to build him from a plane, always built myself my planes. I do not like the kits, I enjoy cutting, binding and gluing wood, so as to then fly them.
Hence, the level requested.
And it's not about money, it is because I enjoy the workshop as well as the flight, if not understood,?
Thank you very much anyway.
