FYI - paint kit out shortly

Post Scott - A2A »

We should have an official paintkit out in 1 - 2 days.

Is anyone interested in painting a military L-4 version of the Cub? Would be awesome if a mission is also built around it....

I'm planning to make this paint as soon as I get my hands on the paint kit: http://www.airliners.net/photo/Piper-J- ... 2da2889d49

I had done this one for the Flight Replicas Grasshopper and I think I still have most of the stuff saved somewhere on the storage drive............ should be an easy conversion over to this aircraft with a paintkit.

If the paintkit is out, would somebody be so nice and take a look at that paint ...

I painted "Mistress" for the Flight Repica L4 - Tom Schau-Damm helped with some detail (he owns the "Mistress") - it would look odd on the Cub, but worth a try.

Wrong version - Sometimes the RW owners look in and don't approve. But nothing against a lookalike...

I know it's actually a Cub special. But the paints looks wonderful and would suit the J-3 well me thinks.

There's also a really nice "true" J-3 down under, the VH-DIT -> http://cdn-www.airliners.net/aviation-p ... 808618.jpg

Although, looking as the photo it seems the cabin is longer. I'm pretty surprised to see that the Cub is relatively rare down under.

That one is the military version of the J-3 known as the L-4. It was different in a number of ways but the easy way to tell the difference is to look at the area of the fuselage just behind the wing TE. If it is fabric it's a J-3, if it's glass/plexi it's a L-4.
