This is a replica of a Piper J-3 Cub, a small and simple training aircraft, shown here in its traditional yellow colour with a black stripe across the fuselage.
Like the original, this MOC is built using very basic techniques. The landing gear and the black stripe near the engine were especially difficult to make. Unfortunately, a compromise had to be made between resistance and looks in order to make a landing gear as realistic as possible. However, it is still strong enough to handle the aircraft's weight.
Inspiration came from one of my teachers, who used to wave a model of this aircraft around, while explaining some principles of aerodynamics.
Nice work! I love the brick-built stripe. I've been thinking about ways to make a representation of the Piper Cub as a single set MOC using 6745 Propeller Power, but so far, I have struck out. Way to go on this one...it is quite admirable.
This is by far the prettiest (sorry for using that word) replica of an aircraft i've seen on these pages. You didn't use any basic techniques. Your technique is very advanced. You nailed all of the detail of this classic American aircraft.
