Sorry Jim but I have to agree with George on this one my friend.

A newby will take a considerable amount of time building his first plane even though you and I could do it much more quickly, cause we have the experience of course. Flying time is coming up quickly. Assemble an ARF trainer, install your radio gear and get out flying. Then as suggested, evenings can be used to build that Cub at your leasure and one won't feel pressured to do a rush job where mistakes could be made, rushing to get out flying. especially at this time of year.

Take the good advise to search out a club and an instructor is a MUST if you want to learn to do it properly and avoid all kinds of misery, frustration, and discouragement.

I agree with Gary's approach. Get a model (i.e. ARF) ready ASAP so you can fly, but spend time enjoying building a kit and get the appreciation of what goes into it. A cub is a good kit to work on as so many people have built them there is lots of advice out there should you look for it.

A buddy of mine is doing this now. His first couple of trainers were ARF's, but now that he has just gotten his wings he is building a 1/4 scale Cub. Built-up trainers usually have the best manuals for new guys/girls, but if you are a bit construction savvy, then going to a kit like a Cub that is from a good manufacturer that has a good manual along with asking club members and this forum questions ... you'll find it to be an easy and enjoyable project.
