Full Size J-3 Piper Cub in NSW? Where can I get a close up look?

Hi All,
Re: Full Size J-3 Piper Cub in NSW? Where can I get a close up look?
I am keen to build a "stand off scale" Piper Cub. Can anyone suggest where I can get a close up look at a full size J-3?
Somewhere in South-West Sydney would be ideal. Any suggestions gratefully received.
Thanks for taking the time to read this post,
Tony

Couple of years ago, I was at the Temora Aviation Museum, the manager Kenny Love, had one there, wasn't part of the Museum's assets, I believe it was his and privately owned, but can't help with much more than that.

You could search the registered aircraft database at http://casa-query.funnelback.com/sea...craft_register

If you want a Super Cub instead then some Glider clubs use them for towing. But the Southern Cross Club at Camden is all Pawnees I think.

A friend of mine owns one in partnership with a few others, I'll ask him where he keeps it and see if he would let you view it next time he's out there.

Thanks for the posting Aussie John, but I want to keep things as simple as possible and restrict research to the J-3 Cub for the time being,
Regards,
Tony

Same here even got a ride in a few it never hurts to ask, worst that will happen is they say no
If your after info for building then have a look here
http://www.fsdeveloper.com/wiki/inde...ans_References
You will have to spend a bit of time searching though the links, I mainly use the net for building 3d aircraft for FSX,you can find just about anything with a bit of time..also give http://www.airliners.net/ a look over, they has some great high res pics in their database.Finally plastic model kits are a great reference as well
