• 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).

Hello my name is Chris I'm 20 years old and a student. I allready read a lot about the other projects here and now I've started my own project.

At first I'm from Germany, so sorry for my bad language :D
My plan is to build a S1-S from Aviat Plans from skretch. At the moment it looks like a friend and me will build two planes simultaniously, so this should make things easier in some places.
At the moment I'm making a CAD model of the whole plane so I can get many parts CNC or Laser cut at the end. I allready have drawn the Fuselage and some other small parts like the Spars or some Fittings and the Tail section. It comes along quiet nicely. But sometimes it's hard to draw the parts correctly from the Plans to 3D.
Here are some pictures of the current CAD model.

I hope you like what I'm doing and looking forward to some tips or tricks from you.
