Piper J3 Cub ModelRob when he had beard and glasses

I built a 1:5.5 scale Piper J3 Cub back in 1996 but only flew it a few times.  It was immense fun to build, but I have to say that staring up into the sky with watering eyes in the cold didn't really appeal to me. It took a little while to pluck up the courage to cover the open structure, but having done so I have to say I'm very pleased indeed with the result. As proof, compare a real Piper J3 Cub with the model:
