The Great Planes Cub was very popular at our club.

Here is the manual

I have no idea about the plans.

I built the GP 40 cub some years ago and keep all my plans. I will check but I'm sure I have them. Now they may not be in great shape, cut up into sections, etc and other various abuses but I can send them to you if still needed...
I had built the clipped version...

Yes, I am interested in the plans you have, even if they are "used" as described. Please let me know how you wish to handle that.

These are from my GP Piper J-3 Cub Anniversary Edition which I believe are the same. Downloaded the template files from the Great Planes website. I included them as I'm not sure there available to download anymore.

If you have photoshop you can easily enlarge the templates to the right size and print them out on multiple pages and tape them together.

So I ventured into my drawer of plans and you're in luck. They're in quite good shape. As I built the clippped wing option, the plans follow the usual, cut along this line and re-tape to shorten the wing type deal but all the pieces are there and can be taped back to to get the full span if needed. The fuse, vert ical and horiz stab are in excellent shape. The wing besides having the cut to shorten things up has some other issues but still easily used to get you back in the air . I've got your address and will get them out in some sort of envelope tomorrow.

Wow! Thanks so much. I wasn't sure if you got my reply - the PM interface on this site doesn't show "sent messages". Sorry for doubling down - LOL

FYI... you can check sent msgs...
At the top, under the collored usage bar it shows "jump to folder", click the down arrow for sent msgs.
If you choose to delete, be careful it seems to be all or nothing if you delete as I had found out.
You can go into each msg invididually and delete I believe.
