About this Plan
Piper PA-18 Super Cub. Rubber scale model. Wingspan 540mm.
Quote: "Hi Mary & Steve, the scan is a results of this thread: http://www.rc-network.de/forum/showthread.php/669636 I think you can read and understand it at least rudimentary (or use your browser's translation tool ;-) There have been two series of rubber powered flyers. The first appeared at the end of the fifties, they've been rebranded Yeoman's resp. FrogFlite's, you can see them at post # 13, 2nd pic, first row. The newer (and ontopic) line are presumptive Graupner's own designs. The building instructions are printed on the plan - and German only. Of course, because Graupner can't stand against the large amount of Veron, Keil Kraft, etc. ;-)"
Direct submission to Outerzone.
Supplementary file notes
Build photos. This is an alternate version (in greyscale) of the 7 build photos shown on the plan. Maybe clearer to view.
Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)?
That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

ScaleType: This (oz11930) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.
If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.
ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piper_PA-18_Super_Cub
Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.
Do you have a photo you'd like to submit for this page? Then email firstname.lastname@example.org
User commentsNice plan, ditto forum even if I have to occasionally pick up my Langenscheidts dictionary! Online translation is much more efficient of course, but one tenth of the fun :-) Thank you pikpak.

This was a quick build kit, parts were die-cut and had to be lightly cut out of the sheets. If I remember correctly, like so many other Graupner models they were quite easy to build and remarkably rugged, but fairly heavy. I think I built at least one of those some 40 years ago, together with a Boelkow Monsun of similar construction.
Today, I would build this model with lighter wings (framework and tissue covering) and some struts to add to scale appearance.

Hi Steve & Mary, This is my Graupner Super Cub from ca. 1983. Converted to Round-The-Pole, we used to let kids fly it at our annual club exhibition [more pics 004,005]. It took a heck of a beating, but I always managed to repair it. Goodness knows how many hours flying it did. Best Regards!

* Credit field
The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.
This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
