I am looking for a windshield for a Hanger 9 106" Piper Cub. Unfortunately this airplane is no longer available through Hanger 9 or Horizon Hobbies. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Windshield


Make your own for the cost of the plastic . On one of the forums on RCC I posted a rough shape a person would be looking at. Take some cheap thin cardboard (poster cardboard )to get the shape and when satisfied copy to the plastic. The cardboard is clamped on each side and the top is rolled back and clamped at the top . Here is a very rough hand drawn shape that you will come out with. Bud Nosen had these drawn on their plans
; correct size. Just copy and cut. After everything was ready to glue ; I clamped to the airframe and did a little heat to the corner/bends and then let cool. Takes the stress out of the bends.

Re: Windshield


Thanks, I will definitely give that a try. I also have taped the windshield back together enough that I think I can make a plaster mold of it. It seems a lot of people are looking for this windshield as well.

Thanks again.

Re: Windshield


Trying to mold one takes a lot of effort . Once you have the cardboard template made up , you and everyone are off to the races. Scan it , email it and the next person can have one cut out in less than 5 minutes. Over the 6 years that I owned my 1/4 Citabria I had to replace it a couple of times. It took more time to remove the old one than to make up another. Sooo easy
Don't even have to buy cardboard as the cardboard in large cereal boxes if large enough, works just as well.
