Default Super Cub clones

Thinking of starting a super cub clone project. So far have looked at bushwacker, cub crafters and bearhawk. I like bearhawk patrol but was wondering if anyone here had opinion or experience in building any of these?

I am in the process of building a Carbon Cub so as you can guess I'm bias. The kit itself is extremely complete and the factory support is outstanding. The build is very straight forward with an outstanding manual. I would call the CC EX more of an assembly than a fabrication. If I have questions the kit manager just walks out to the production line and tells me how its done. It's the most expensive of your three choices but IMO you get what you pay for.

Do some more searching. There are some other great kits as well. Over on SC.org there is a great thread on the Javron cub. Javron is new to the complete kit business but its sounds like support and quality have been very good.

There is also the SQ2 and the Dakota Cub. All good supercub clones. You are going to spend close to or over 100k on any of those kits so do your homework.

No experience, but always consider the same. You need to look into Javron and Backcountry Supercubs. The mother of all threads is on supercub.org chronicalling Bill Rusks build of a javron cub - and every possible decision of kits and options.
