Jim Sullivan Memorial Build, Piper NE-1
My second build for the Mr. Jim Sullivan memorial group build is based on a picture in the book, Golden Wings 1941-1945, co-authored by Jim Sullivan, a USN, Piper NE-1.
The NE-1 is the Navy version of the iconic Piper J3C-65, Cub used for training and liaison work.
Special Hobby, 1/48, J-3 Cub Goes to War
Primer, Mr. Surfacer 1200, White
Mr. Color, 329, Yellow/FS13538
Moderately weathered with artist oil wash.
Insignia were painted using masks I created with my cricut cutter.
Tail numbers were individual decals from the spares box and the Cub emblem were from the kit.
EZ Line-Fine was used for the rigging.
Thanks for stopping by and checking this out. If interested, you can check out the build progression over at...
I had some troubles during the build, mostly of my own doings, but all in all it was a fun build.
I hope my build brings Jim honor.
As always, until next time KEEP IT FUN!
