Piper PA-18 Super Cub
Civil Aircraft
Revell / Germany

 The PA-18 Super Cub is a single engine, two-place, strutted high-wing monoplane with a tubular steel airframe and fabric covering.  Developed and built by the Piper Aircraft Corporation, the PA-18 Super Cub, introduced in 1949, was the direct descendent of the famous J-3 Cub built and sold to personal sport pilots and to the United States military in the 1930s and 1940s.  The United States Army designated the military version of the J-3 Cub, the L-4.  As a testament to its simple yet robust construction, Piper Cubs (L-4s) and later Super Cubs (L-18s) stayed in almost continuous production from the 1930s through the 1990s.  When production finally came to an end, over 40,000 J-3 Cubs (L-4s) and PA-18 Super Cubs (L-18s) had been produced, which makes it the most numerous aircraft of its class ever produced in the United States.  The operational characteristics of the Piper PA-18 Super Cub are as follows: 1) Top speed of just over 150 mph; 2) Range of just over 450 miles and 3) Service ceiling of 19,000 feet.  This 92 piece Piper PA-18 Super Cub scaled model includes the following features: 1) Authentic markings for one German & one British civil version & one Federal German armed forces variant; 2) Clear plastic panoramic glazed cockpit canopy; 3) Detailed cockpit with 2-seats; 4) Detailed 4-cylinder engine; 5) Detailed surfaces with fabric texture & recessed panel lines; 6) Detailed undercarriage; 7) Movable propeller; 8) Optional tail wheel; 9) Separate access hatch; 10) Separate navigation lights; 11) Wire mesh structure in cockpit area and 12) Illustrated assembly instructions.  The model box is in new condition.  Never started and factory sealed.
