Taking Off! Bi-Plane

I’ve been researching the various varnishes etc for the finishing on the plane and decided on a Deep Mahogany for the wings. I also found a thick copper wire which I have used between the supports. I’m debating whether to add quirky elements to the plane.

Embarking on painting the plane is rather daunting as I want the finish of the plane to be totally perfect. I’ve begun to add brass screw eyes and I’m individually colouring the screws I’m using.

I’ve sourced a garden furniture wood stain, Country Cream to colour the back wings and the rudder but very hesitant to go ahead and colour the main wings. I’m edging the plane with Sanderson antique gold and adding gilding.

Taking Off!
