On another note, my brother called me today and told me he just bought an S-1S Pitts. So it looks like I’ll once again be getting to fly a Pitts again occasionally. This is his third S1S. It will be the 4th S1S I’ve flown. They are loads of fun. Need to check the repack date on my parachute...

After a couple of failed attempts, I’m going to try cutting masks to cover white areas to shoot red. Trying to mask the sunburst scheme by masking has been unsuccessful because of the tiny corners. So, to make the masks, I built a small light box to use cutting the mask. I had some acrylic sheet and LED lights left over from my recent spray booth project so I built this.
Here it is with computer generate graphic with frisket paper laid over it. Worked well. Once cut I’ll use drawing below to lay out blue tape to lay frisked against for alignment.

Nice! I struggled with the starburst on my Pitts and ended up creating templates and then cut individual triangle-shaped masks for each white area. It was a bugger to get everything lined up and symmetrical - your idea looks much better. Looking forward to seeing your results.

Left sanded, right just glued down.
After first wet sanding after adding rib detail.
Primered and wet sanded. Rib detail will be more subdued after priming and paint.
Top wing with fuselage and lower wings. I also added rear cabane struts. Small and fidely they were a paint. Reinforced bottom attach point of upper wing and fitted and everything appeared straight...yay.
