[NC09105]
The E2 Cub by Taylor Aircraft can be considered as the earliest ancestor of the Piper J3 Cub. As the E2 was an aircraft created to boost the publics interest in aviation, it was relatively cheap compared to its contemporaries. During the later months of 1930, Taylor Aircraft declared bankruptcy, which led to a change in ownership to William Piper. Thus when Walter Jamouneau an employee decided to trick out an E2 during his spare time, the resulting design carried the name Piper instead of Taylor. What Jamouneau did, however, was unauthorized and he got fired because of it. It wasnt until the company took notice of the considerable upgrade he did when Jamouneau got his job back. The plane was named as the J2, which some experts believe stand for the designers last name. The J3 Cub was officially introduced in the late 1930s as a replacement to the J2. Most of the modifications the J3 had were on framework and engine. In fact, the Piper J3 was powered by a lot of engines which led to a number of variants. The J3 Piper entered military service as a trainer plane during the 1939 Civilian Pilot Training Program. This handcrafted model is painted in the same paint scheme as the original and is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen. Perfect as a gift for any aviation enthusiast and history buff
