• 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.

Hi All,

Thanks very much for starting this forum. I was starting to think all the web sites for Skybolt builders had gone into hibernation (except Al Rice's excellent site).

I just started a Skybolt in June 2006. I am interested in using the "D" model modifications for the gear and upper wing. I was a little dissapointed in the extra drawings from SteenAero for the Deltain that there are no indications of mods to the front fuselage floor trusses. I am thinking about just using the pictures of the Model 12 on their web-siteto guide me.

Is anyone else out there building a Skybolt "D"? Sure would like to see some pictures of the gear attachments and truss.
