Hello everyone!
Before I start with the actual topic, I'd like to introduce myself.
I am a young Glider Pilot with a Huge Passion for Aviation. Cub's
have always been super interesting airplanes for me. Sadly I am not yet allowed to fly These kinds of aircraft, only TMG's for now.
I also make Aircraft for FlightSimulators, such as X-Plane 11, wich is the beginning of this topic.

I am currently planning on making a J-3 Cub Project for X-Plane 11 ( The modelling phase of our CarbonCub FX-3 is done and the Bush focused PA-18 will be started next year). Finding detailed information and pictures seems quite hard for specific things. I would like to know if any J-3 flyer would be up to help with the project by taking some close-ups the next time he visits his beautiful bird at the Airfield.

I have been watching this forum for a while now to gather information about bush cubs, I find them extremely interesting. I finally joined.

I have not quite figured this forum out just yet so I hope this topic fits in here. If not, let me know and I'll do something about it!

Kind Regards,

Tyler

I would not be in the least bit surprised if someone in Germany reached out to you after reading it here. Good luck and let us know what you need.

EDLN... I started flying gliders there (Verein für Luftfahrt Mönchengladbach, Rheydt und Umgebung) in 1989.
A friend of mine owns a J3C-85 (ex L4H). I will ask him for pictures...

To everyone willing to take pictures, first of all, Thank you!

Any Pictures of anything are appreciated but here are some things that would be the most useful.

Interior pictures.. Instrument Panel, Throttle, Fuel, mag switch

Exterior.. Tailwheel, engine cowling(where the engine shows), Elevator closeups

Basically everthing would help, but where stuff connects to other stuff would be the most useful.

I hope its not too much to ask for, thanks again!
