(1) User Manual
The Piper J-3 Cub is a small, simple, light aircraft that was built between 1937 and 1947 by Piper Aircraft. It was intended for flight training, but became one of the most popular and best-known light aircraft of all time. The Cub's simplicity, affordability and popularity often invokes comparisons to the Ford Model T automobile. FMS captures the classic looks of the J3 Piper Cub with this 1400mm EPO model. Pre-painted in Cub yellow, with scale touches such as a pilot figure and seats, clear hard molded windows, engine detailing, scale landing gear and wing struts, brings this model of the J3 Cub to a whole new level.
