• 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.

The state of WA and OR was pretty much shut down today for icy weather. What better reason to join my first online forum?
I started building an acroduster II with plans and raw materials back in 1995 when I still had dark hair and good eyesight. Back then I looked fwd to getting the monthly Starduster magazine for building tips and plan modifications... Raising a family, Career changes and the sudden death of my friend and Mentor in the project caused me to put the fuselage and tail feathers in long term storage.
No time like the present to get started again. Is there anyone out there currently building an acroduster? Are there parts available from Aircraft spruce ? I need Turtle back, fuselage tank, nose bowl, wing rib kit, spring aluminum gear, scott tail wheel...
