Descriptions, pictures, and prices for the various modifications available on an Alaska Airframes PA-18 fuselage order are listed below. The list does not include all of the Alaskan mods we have completed for PA-18 customers in the past, but they are definitely the most common.

Because of the complexity involved in this type of project, customers typically do not use the website to order fuselages. We recommend that you download our build sheet, check pictures of the mods online here, and then review the options with one of our Cub fuselage specialists over the phone so that you can ensure that you get the exact modifications you need to make the exact plane you want.
