Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum

In 1930, C. Gilbert Taylor of the Taylor Aircraft Company designed the E-2 Cub as a small, low cost, light general aviation aircraft. The E-2 was the predecessor of the Piper J-3 Cub which became one of the most popular light aircraft of all time and served in the military during World War II as the L-4. Like the J-3 Cub, it used the Continental A-40 Engine. Unlike many of the tradtional wood models in the collection, this model was constructed of fiberglas, resin, aluminum, and plexiglas by Mike Bortscheller.
