• 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.

Any tips on how to work out where and how to install the windshield and canopy on an S1?

The bubbles from airplane plastics are apparently slightly oversized for trimming to fit... but .. well.. I'm unsure what to trim? I can get them to fit in a variety of different ways - just not sure what's the trick here - eyeball good enough, or down to measurements off plans - which is difficult since it is a compound curve.

It looks to me from pics that there is some variability as to the height of the windshield and the the height of the bubble as well. Would appreciate others experience here to help.
