Unionville Hobby Piper J2 kit??


       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I just bought what looks like a complete 1/5 Piper J2 kit, made by Unionville Hobby.

One thing that I know is missing is the fiberglass cowling that is supposed to be there.

Question; Does anyone know how to get a hold of Unionville Hobby?? Do they still exist?

Or failing that, does anyone have a cowling to go with this kit?

Thanks all!

Rich

Re: Unionville Hobby Piper J2 kit??

No, unfortunately, the owners retired a few years ago and although I remember hearing that a hobby shop somewhere had taken over the business, it went nowhere. Kits and parts no longer available. You may be able to do a search here and find out the name of that hobby shop and see if they still have inventory left. Long shot, but might be worth a try.

Having said that, there are lots of J3 Cub kits around in that size, you may be able to adapt something to fit.

I have one of their 8' Radial Beaver kits stashed away for a rainy day. I would love to find one of their Turbo Beaver kits!

Cheers!

I have a friend with a complete undisturbed kit if your interested. Probably 150.00
Also, if only wanting a cowl just order one from Fibreglass Specialties. Shipping is a bit pricey but the cowl is far superior to the original.

Fiberglass Specialties would be my first choice as well.

Emailed Fiberglass Specialities.... they can't help sadly.. no mold. I guess its an old kit.
I guess I'll look around for a 1/5th cowling from a J3 kit...

Which one is best to look for?

Another option may be Fibertech N More:

Can never hurt to ask.

Best try and get some dimensions ahead of time as they may have something compatible listed for another manufacturer.
