A 46 will do you nicely but when you repair it please make sure that it is straight and strong. This is a real challenge when you re-kit it.

As you already know the correct C of G is vital as are the control throws but any Cub of the same dimensions will have roughly the same parameters.

My 40 size on floats has a 61 in it (on the recommendation of knowledgeable posters to these pages) and it's right on. The extra weight balances perfectly and once it breaks water I just throttle back.

The model almost crashed one fine summer evening because it looked so real putting past that I forgot that I WAS FLYING IT!!!

A Cub in any scale is much more than the sum of its parts. Enjoy.

Yup, looks like you've got a nice Cub there. Take your time with it and you'll have a great model that will be lots of fun. This is the right place for advice - plenty of experienced modelers here (I'm not one of them by the way) who are happy to help out. Welcome to the forum!

I vote Saito 56 if trying for scale without floats, Saito 72 if floats.
