• 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 $29.95/year 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).

Tube pattern - main gear

Tube pattern - main gear

Paper pattern on the left - test piece in the center - original tube that I made the pattern from on the right. The second tube I cut was a mirror image of the first. I used the first as a pattern by wrapping a sheet of paper around it and cutting off the overhang. Unwrapped the pattern and wrapped it in reverse on the test piece. Worked like a champ. Cut three hours (half the amount of time) to cut the second one.
