Piper J3 Cub peanut scale remaining piece
 
Hello,
I'm a beginner on aircraft modeling, I'm from Mexico City and I have a simple question... I've been trying to find out where the piece F12 fits but have not been able to figure it out, does anyone knows where should I place it?
Thanks!
Banano

This piece has been in every Peck kit I've ever built. I've often wondered if it isn't some sort of inside joke, but it seems more likely that it has a utilitarian purpose. I have used it in the past to set dihedral, and I've glued it perpendicular to a 2" square piece and used it as a tail rest while I do some detail work. I haven't built them all, so I can imagine that it will actually have a specific use somewhere.

It's not required in the fuse of the Cub, though. The Cub is a great flyer, BTW--have fun with it.
