The light and cheap J-3 Cub aeroplanes were behind the development of the civil aviation in the USA in the late 1930s. With the end of the world crisis the interest in aviation increased and the J-3 was an ideal type for the basic training and tourist flying. With WW2 coming, the J-3 came into the sights of the military and the USAAF decided to test the type in the artillery spotting and short range recon roles. Needless to say the J-3 succeeded and the production for the military commenced under the designation L-4 Grasshopper.
   The model kit comes on two grey styrene sprues and one with the clear parts. The decal sheet offers markings for three airframes. The yellow one portrays a pre-war machine and is accompanied by two military machines. The first of these was an ex-civilian airplane wearing olive drab coat over the still partially visible yellow overall. The other military-flown machine is in the standard olive drab and neutral grey colours.

-    Attractive colour scheme options
-    Also available for this model – masks, 3D printed engine, resin wheels
-    Truly iconic aeroplane
