• 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.

Hello again..........When do y'all clean up your ribs and how........I was planning on waiting till all of the ribs were complete before cleaning them up.......When I say cleaning them up I mean getting rid of all of the glue squeeze out..........In these pictures does it seem that I have too much squeeze? Sorry about beating the squeeze issue to death.........Im just being a rookie.........I get picky and I like things to look nice but at the same time I want them to be strong.
