    • 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.
    • 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.

I have been struggling like a 1 1/2 ton woman trying to fit in the bed of a 1 ton pickup over the choice of Model 12 or Skybolt Radial. I have read almost everything on the net about both and am leaning toward the 12. I'm 6'3 225 and I need space/resonable comfort. What are the experts here saying about the reason somebody would choose one over the other. Anybody know of a current finished or in progress build of the 12/ Rad. Bolt in the Kansas City Missouri area (I know I need to see them in person).
