• 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).

Attaching fairings

I read Bernie's excellent instruction sheet on building fairings. Question on attachments. Bernie suggests brass nutserts or nutplates for mounting. Any suggestions for mounting on previously constructed aircraft? I'm looking at fairing the cabane to wing and the landing wire brackets on the top of the lower wings. Will small (no. 4 or 6) (sheet metal) I meant to say PK screws work without adding structure ? The one on the front of the cabane looks to me like it would go into the alum. leading edge.
