1/48 Lindberg JN-4D Jenny
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 ?
