Glad to hear you got the G23. I almost did buy it. (wife said to keep it simple since I work in a garage )
I did the sig 1/4 scale to scale. full wing span 105 inches. I already bought a cliped wing version. The weight to date is very very light compared to my cliped wing one. I had to re-inforce the bulk head with fiberglass and epoxi on the inside of the fuel tank and nose section. I did not like the way it all sits (butts) together. I built the wings exactly according to plans. The sheeting on the right wing panel is very long since the mid section is permanently attached to it. I used lots and lots of t pins and patience. I also used lots of little blocks cut to shape in and around the wing tips for strenght. No mater what you will end up having to use a good grade wood filler to fill some butt joint once dry. (finishing touch before covering) I used the hardware for the struts from the kit. and the wing joining. It makes sence. but keep in mind that the wing struts are FUNCTIONAL on that bird so use good glue where the wing strut mounts are inside the wing bottom. (epoxi everything) better than carpenter's glue or even c/a. NO mater what you choose. this plane has wing area to SPARE!!! . It's a floater. I love the look of a yellow cub. The cliped wing version will not give you that much more aerobatic properties.
Good luck and keep in touch...

Re: Sig Cubs

Very interesting method of clamping denmac, thanks for your input, I am going to have to try that. Have to find some brass pins first, I am sure all we have would be the steel ones, of course the brass is much softer so no problem bending. I am sure I can buy some. I expect your method will be used by others that read this thread. Thanks..

Jesse... Thanks for the update info.

Sounds similar to what I was alluding to with rubber bands and spare wood. Difficult to describe but obvious one seen.... Basically 2 pieces of wood (longer than part to be clamped) on either side of parts to be held together with rubber bands on either end.

Re: Rubber Bands

You are right Jim... rubber bands.. I guess I will have to get some of those too... threw them all out when I started bolting my wings on.
