• 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.

Since I'm new to the forum I'll apologize in advance if this has already been talked to but I couldn't find much by searching.

I'll be starting to cover soon and was wondering what process is currently in vogue. With my first Skybolt I went with Stits and Polyfiber. It seemed to work pretty well but that was 13 years ago so I'm curious if there's anything else that's better (read that easier).
