1/48 Lindberg JN-4D Jenny
August 14, 2013 in Aviation
Time for another walk down memory lane, the Lindberg Jenny. My inspiration for this scheme was the Jenny at the Old Reinbeck Airdrome, in upstate New York. I could find no proof of the US Navy ever usung this scheme, and the tail markings are French, opposite of US, but that’s the way my reference was done. I just couldn’t fit all the markings on the tail, so left them off, rather than foul them up. For such an old kit, it was a lot of fun. The engine had a little detail, and some was added to the interior, but the rigging was the most time consuming, Everytime I looked at my reference, I found another piece I’d missed. It finally came together, at least to my satisfaction. It’s no contest winner, but it’s a bright spot on my shelf. When was the last time you built a model that came with a stand ?
