Piper Clipped Wing Cub

The Piper Clipped Wing Cub was a popular aerobatic plane often seen at 1950s airshows.

I find it a captivating vintage aircraft, as it was essentially a "sport version" of the famous J-3 Cub. Its short-span Reed clipped wing gave it improved roll and handling characteristics, which allowed it to perform graceful aerobatic maneuvers.  

With the lack of aircraft in Lego's Creator Expert / 18+ line in recent times, I feel this eye-catching, large-scale plane would make a great addition to any Lego vehicle fan's collection and would look splendid sitting on the shelf next to Lego's Sopwith Camel.
