• 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.

This version is very similar to the Skybolt since they share the same chord. There are some differences in the heights and locations of the spars so I made a specific design for the Model 12. You could use this board on a Skybolt and be within .1° to the chord lines or you could use the Skybolt board on a Model 12 with the same small error.

This design is for the plans-built wings. The HP wing is different but I have no drawings to go by to tell me exactly what is different between the two. Maybe Kevin will be able to help anyone with HP wings make the boards fit their airplane.

Please let me know of any errors, omissions, etc you may find.
