Some 11 years after having created my first F4F Wildcat profiles, I’ve had the opportunity to create a brand-new template for Grumman’s very under-rated fighter. For the moment, I’ve only created the base template for the late FM-2 variant, but the more classic F4F-4 and F4F-3 should follow next. Click on the image to view it […]
The Super Cub was the evolution of the famous Piper Cub and is still a highly successful and popular aircraft today. While the Cub was very cheap and simple, its performance was quite limited. The Super Cub took the concept to the next level, offering more power, speed and payload, thus turning the Cub into […]
