Pico J3-F Cub
This poor little Cub has been sitting in the box for more than a year, so I finally felt sorry for it and put it together. Too many yellow ones out there, so I painted it. Typical GWS equipment.

ummm i thought it was illegal to paint those cubs anything other than cub yellow.....you're in trubble!
anyway..what are you flying it with?...battery/motor combo?
also, what size wheels are you using?
I have one(just finished, not painted yet). I fly it with the stock dx-a motor(w/1047 prop), and an e-flite 6 cell 400mAh ni-cad. Its all stock except for the tail wheel, I made a really tiny one, I had to...because my 5 minute epoxy started setting before i had the two halves together...I noticed...tried to quickly bring the halves together, was all relieved that i got them together in time, then I noticed the little tail skid still sitting on the table...
Its really tame on that combo, I fly it in a soccer field and can circle for about 8mins or so between the goal posts(at full throttle cuz with that 6 cell 400mah nicad its not gonna glide, and half throttle seems useless). I have to hand launch because it will not ROG in the grass, (never really tried to ROG with this plane anyway). I know it won't ROG from grass because the stock GWS wheels won't even let me land on the grass(all my landings are tip overs). Hand launches are easy, I have an MPI speed controller that only does soft starts, so I give it full throttle, wait for the esc to come up to full speed, then just give it the gentlest toss and its gone.
I have to learn to catch it and then I think I'll have even more fun.

Stock DX-A with 10/4.7 or 9/7, six and seven cell 270 NiCad or seven cell 280 NiMH pack, GWS ESC and servos, and 1.5 inch wheels. I also added a steerable tailwheel, as I'm fortunate to have paved runways.
Thanks; glad you like it.
