John I gave flat what primer then two light coats of lemon yellow so far it’s a semi gloss I’m going to give it one more light coat of yellow to even out the color and will give gloss clear. I been kicking around that thought about flat yellow and I’m getting same results lol

Don.

What it looks like is a continental r-670 according to google, but the rigging part is approaching fast thinking about using piano wire

Looking good so far, I used a high e guitar string (nickel), for the rigging on mine from a few years ago and it scales pretty well for the stearman.

Jrock83 thank you I'm using .015'' music wire in nickel. I did manage 4 coats of lemon yellow on controll and wing surfaces test fit motor and top wing. I did the rigging on the center struts.

Looks like you're doing a swell job on that yellow Nick. That's a real tough color to get good coverage with.

Sure is looking good. Agreed on your good work on the yellow, and whilst decals always add to aircraft models, they really POP on this little biplane, don't they?
