• 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.

forward belly skin

Assembled multitudes,

After giving a honest try, researching site for pictures or text regarding the belly skin between firewall and next panel, I give up and ask!

How does this panel fit around the parts of the bungee style gear and allow movement of said gear?

Am I not findingthe infoon this panel? If so guide me to the help. There is a flying Skybolt a couple hundred north of me which I may have to visit - with camera.

Thanks to the help of this forum the project is moving better! Recall it is an abandoned project that suffered from poor handling and storage. With the compleation of the sheet metal I will dismantle and clean, repaint and reassemble with a double checkand - - think aboutcovering!
