Hi Steve-I just got one of those,and although it fits,it isn't as long as the one supplied with the Arf.Thanks though.I respect Fiberglassspecialties,but the cowl listed is too short,as shown....Apparently I need an original Hangar Nine.When installed,it shortens the nose too much....looks stubby.

Super Cub Cowl


Hi! Due to the detail and lay up process using west system, cowls are made per order and allow two weeks for shipment! This super cub cowl is my best seller for the fussy builder that demands the best overall scale look! PM me with your firewall dimensions, and I will also quote price. You can check my feedback on RCU under probuilder.

Probuilder-- Just the man I was looking for! I heard you were making these. I have a SIG 1/4 scale Cub framed up but I want to modify it for a PA-18 conversion. Do you know if your cowl will work straigt away or will I have to modify the firewall? PM me price and details when you can.

Thanks,
Mike

Earl,
I need a cowl for my old 1/4 scale Hanger 9 Cub. It was sold but the buyer backed out, so I decided to keep and "Dress" her up a little, so to speak. If you want to sell that cowl, I may be interested. I need the length of yours to see it I can get it to fit mine.

Has anyone tried the new super cub PA18 from hanger 9 engine cowl on the hanger 9 J3? Wanting to convert and to me this seems to make most sense. Any thoughts?

The Hangar 9 J-3 and Super Cub are two different airplanes from the instrument panel forward....
You may be able to 'force-fit' the Super Cub on the J-3, but it'll be a little work.

The look alike until you get them side by side.

That's ok, I don't mind doing some fuselage and firewall work to make it fit. I was just hoping it would be of the most scale of the super cub cowl options.
