Ah. It's a yellow high wing monoplane (YHWM), you're going to fit right in here.  Smiley

It is rather pretty though.
Cheers,

Nice one!
 I used to fix Cub wings for a living, and so am a bit biased to the type

Several years back, I got to work with Mike Gretz on a historical full scale reproduction. When he came out to visit first time, he'd already learned that several of the key team were avid modelers (mostly CL stunt and combat ) and over lunch  presented me (mainly a  FF scale guy)  an old Berkeley Piper Tri Pacer kit plan. Of which, I was restoring my own full scale project, at the time.   Anyway, found  we shared many common interests. Right off, he also suggested I contact a modeler named Mark Braunlich, who he thought also shared our considerable common interests in history, full scale, and scale modeling.  Interestingly enough, I'd already JUST started connecting with Mark via this very  forum! (I'm looking at Mark's wonderful 1/16 scale Fokker  E III plan as I type!... and contemplating an enlargement to 1/12  or maybe even 1/6 scale).  You might look up his Loneing M-8  build, currently seen on Outdoor FF, FF scale forum, here on Hip Pocket.

Anyway, Mike Gretz became an integral part of , and active contributor to, our aviation history "think tank" , and remained so, until his untimely death. Good guy. Great model designer and noted SIG executive.
