• 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 have been googling and found old posts from EAAForums of 3D print models for engines. Some are good, some very bad, some seemingly inaccessible based on their post date. Does anyone on here have a 3D model of a Lycoming IO-540 to print full-scale and use as a dummy engine for building my cowling and forward fuselage on my Skybolt? Or perhaps an actual model you used for your own purposes such as this?

Thanks in advance,
