Just to be a little different, how 'bout a carbon cub and a couple of sizes of tundra tires. There are some nice paint jobs, but they are never seen
off airfields outside Alaska.

Oh, the Carbon Cub is very pretty. However, I kind of like the Monster Cub (300 HP Monster Cub!!), but we digress - that is a long way from the J3 . And still a lot of J3 schemes to look at.

John

Still working out the J3 - likely that this will progress to a Super Cub in the future...

This is my own personal opinion: I myself prefer the Super Cub with its beautiful closed cowling. Looking forward to your rendition of this classic aircraft.

I hope to finish my first J-3 soon.

And I am looking forward to the PA-18, another airplane with which I have a connection. The Maryland Civil Air Patrol Wing Parkville Squadron had a PA-18 in the 1950s and 60s. Between 1956 and 1958, I flew in the back seat many times from Quinn Airfield, Baltimore Harbor Field, and Baltimore Friendship Airport (now BWI) and occasionally handled the controls. After I left for college in 1958 I flew in the aircraft from time to time when I was home on vacation.

Piper PA-18-105 Special Super Cub N184T C/N 18-2298.

Again, no images that I have been able to find, but N-184T was overall aluminum with the N number in black on the fuselage sides and, I think, on the wing, and with the Civil Air Patrol emblem on the vertical tail surfaces.

The Parkville Squadron no longer exists, but I have sent a request to the Maryland CAP Wing Historian for information on and, I hope, images of N-184T.

Don

Thanks Don! I will keep an eye out for pictures of N184T also.

I honestly believed for a long time that everyone in the hobby started out with the FG J-3. Not sure how I came to believe this, but there it is.
