Did you buy the project that was for sale on Barnstormers? Looked like a good start to a nice plane.

I'm not sure what length flying wires you will need if you don't have any, but there's a few batches on eBay going pretty cheap. Looks like a really fun plane and fun project. I've seen some nice UTube vids a guy posted. Looks like it really flys nice.

Always liked the airplane but with an 18" fuselage width it takes me out of the game. The wings are about as simple as can be. The plans are a scattered out mess but they are still good enough to work from.

It came with flying wires. Which is great! It's narrow but it's pretty long inside. I'm 6'1 and I fit great.

Hi, great to see another Jungster 1 being restored
We are restoring one down here in NZ. She needs all new wings but re-using the steel fittings. The fuse is in pretty good shape but needs a few new gussets etc.. I'll post some pics when I'm back home. What engine are you putting in yours? We are looking at a 150+ hp O320, she should really go with that power . We are looking at using the Belite instruments to save weight too. Also toying with the idea of using a large capacity li ion battery for starting and electrics with a flexible solar panel on the top centre section to constantly trickle charge the li ion battery so the weight of the generator can be lost. Love seeing your pics, keep posting them
Cheers
Ps, I'm 6,2 ish and fit no worries, but it does make getting in and more importantly out if you move the instrument panel forward a little, which does mean changing the steel tube and gussets that it mounts to.

We have a town called Concrete. Probably around 500 people. There is a large limestone deposit hence the name Concrete. Several flyin's a year there, this was the general one. Meet a fellow that built a Jungster. Very interesting guy and very ambitious. Into Acro deeply. I have yet to get to his place but he is also building a one design. Maybe this winter. He claimed it was so tight he could not stand to fly it across the mountains to the IAC competition. I am about 6' and he was shorter than I. Will have to give him a visit and get more info.

About 16.5 inches inside dimension for your shoulders. It would help to be anorexic.

That is a lovely looking Jungster!! If you have anymore pics please post them
I'm a 78kg pretty slim build. Bulging the aluminum cockpit door flaps could give a little more room but the narrowness doesn't bother me actually feels nice to me. I do recommend moving the instrument panel forward, need to use slim line instruments for this. It makes getting in and out much easier. Once I was sitting in this one before I stripped it down I had no issues with length for pedals ect.. But it's an upright cockpit and if a parachute is worn them no seat or back padding would be required.
I think you do need to be slim for this plane but length can be acclimated. I can not fit inside a bushby mustang, much to my disappointment, due to lack or legroom.
I don't think of the Jungster as a comfy xc machine but rather a get in,get high,thrash the stick about then land

Yip I agree his name is Mr Bob Hoover named in honour of the late great Bob Hoover. He's an aviation lover, loves to chase my radio control planes.

That is Jerry Kerr's Jungster 1. He has had it a long time. He is also working on a Skyote I believe.
