• 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'm working on the 3-pc wing. Ready to order the material. My drawings aren't that clear on a few dims. Wondering ifsomeone could take a minute to check the sizes and or materialthey've used.

Center Section
- Front and back spars? Spruce ? Just want to make sure.
- Item 15: on DWG 403 is the size 3/8" x 2" x 25" ? I can't make out that first dim.
- Item 7: DWG 403 1/8" x 5 3/4" x 34 1/16" ? I can't make out that last dim.

Ribs 4 & 5
- Item 55: Is the center dim 1 1/2" or 1 1/4" ?

- Item 15: 7/8" x 1 3/8"? x ? Is the center dim 1 3/8" and what is that last dim. Quantity too ?
