• 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.

Just put the last weld on the fuselage last night.

What a pain in the arse ! It was the lower center cluster at Station 0-o. The bungee truss is only 5 inches from it and most of the weld lines were extremely hard to get to. If I had to do it again I might leave out the bungee truss until I had this 0-o cluster welded up. Anywho...

What are most of you doing after the main fuselage ? Seats then the landing gear ?
