• 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 am about toinstall the wing leading edges of2024 aluminium.Thealu thatI have, islong enough to make them in one piece for each wing, but I wonder if it is better to split them in two. I seem to remember to have read somewhere, that if they are too long, they will grow so much in the hot sun as to buckle and perhaps loosen the nails. What are your opinion on that matter?
