• 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).

How will this cover?

I have 1/16 leading edge ply instead of aluminium. This forms a step down on to the ribs. I am a long ways away from fabric covering, but was wondering, will the fabric process blend this step in enough to look ok, or would it be a good idea to glue on, say, a 7" x 1/4inch piece on each rib rib and feather-in?
