• 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.

I've covered my fuselage with Stits EP430 primer... (I like that stuff!) Anyways, I'd like to end up with maybe a light blue fuselage. Any reccomendations about what to use to paint over the EP430? Or should I even consider it? I know that many of the fabric covering systems will lift paint, thus I'm concerned. Maybe use the EP420 & add pigment? Anybody done that?

Thanks in advance for good advice.
