• 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).

When the 1/4 bolts are finally mounted to the spar, access is closed off at the front when the leading edge is attached, and at the rear when the top panel is glued on...I plan using fibre lock nuts, is this normal (to close off these bolts)? or do some builders create a removable inspection plate somewhere?
