• 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.

duster centersection detail needed

Hey guys.

My centersection on my Stearman knockoff is similar to the Acro/Starduster with a ply bottom. A friend is going to do some load calculations for me, but i need to decide on some details first.

I'd like more detail on how the straps mount...they look like they fit around the outsides of the spars on the dusters.

I'd also like to know the dimensions or capacity of the tank.

I've attached a couple of pictures to illustrate what i'm asking about. If anyone has built one, or has a set of plans to look it up i'd appreciate it. I'm just considering using the same method.
