• The Biplane Forum is a large global active community of biplane builders, owners and pilots. From Pitts to Skybolts, to older barnstormers, all types are welcome. In addition to our active community, our content boasts exhaustive technical information which is often sought after for projects and maintenance. This information has accumulated over the 12+ years the forum has been in existence.

    The Biplane Forum is a private community. Subscriptions are only $49.99/year or $6.99/month to gain access to this great community and unmatched source of information not found anywhere else on the web. We are also a great resource for non biplane users, since many GA aircraft are built the same way (fabric and tube construction). Annual membership also comes with two BiplaneForum.com decals.

Damn !
Thought picking a qt of paint was going to be easy.

Looking at buying a qt of paint so that I can color match a few parts I have made with the color that the Skybolt will be painted in. Went to AS&S to buy a qt and there must be two dozen choices of paint to buy.

What do I need to buy to cover plain old 4130 ? Acrylic Laquer ?
I assume I should get their primer too ??
