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.

Hi All. I'm building a one of a kind stearman look-a-like here in Ohio. Its not pure scale but really meant to be just a bit lighter than stock. I'm using the R-680 Lyc, 225hp on a fuselage thats APPROX90%. The airfoil is 90% but the span was kept full. Original gear was cut for fit. Fuselage frame is built, engine is in place, wing woodwork is complete, lots of wing rigging and wing attach points are coming together now. All is going pretty well but would like to see some examples of wing centersection construction before i close mine up.
