• 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 $29.95/year 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).

You read that right...! Here's your chance to build something I guarantee no one else will have (except me, this is a duplicate of a Samson I am building. My building partner dropped out, leaving this second fuselage up for grabs...)

Here's what's included with the project:

Fuselage Weldment w/Pilot Seat
Left Horizontal Stab Weldment
Right Horizontal Stab Weldment
Left Elevator w/Trim Tab
Right Elevator w/Trim Tab
Fwd Horizontal Stab H-Tube
Rudder w/Servo Tab
Torque Tube
Fwd Control Stick Tower
Rear Control Stick
Front Control Stick - Two Piece, stick is removable
Fwd Elevator Pushrod
Rear Elevator Pushrod
Elevator Push Rod Idler
Left Elevator Trim Tab Actuator
Right Trim Tab Actuator
Trim Tab Bellcrank
Left Pilot Rudder Pedal w/Brake Pedal
Right Pilot Rudder Pedal w/Brake Pedal
New KP4 Bearings for Elevator Control System - 10 ea
New Fafnir Rod End Bearings for Elevator Control System - 4 ea
Streamlined Tube Stock and Round Tubing for Fwd Cabanes and Landing Gear
1-1/2" Axles - pair
All work has been professionally fabricated by a well known custom fabricator. All work is primed with epoxy primer. All structural welding on these components is complete, but brackets and tabs will still need to be fabricated and installed. This project is extremely accurate with regards to the incredible examples previously created by Steve Wolf. All the hard work to figure out the fuselage, tail and controls geometry is done. I can assist with information needed to complete, sources for spars, ribs and wing hardware, as well as provide you with several options for professional builder assistance from two very reputable shops who have assisted with this build.

This project is not for the faint of heart. But for someone who has always wanted a Samson, this is your chance! $20,000. I can assist with crating and delivery. PM me for details, this will be listed on Barnstormers in a few weeks but listing here first for the real biplane hard cores!

And here's what yours can look like with a little more effort. Since my project is out in front of yours, you won't be figuring out things on your own. Wings are under construction...

You're killing me. I just don't have the time right now for a build like that, but I've always told my wife if we won the lottery my first call would be to Steve to figure out how to get the ball rolling on a new Samson. Then I reassured her that she would of course be my second call!

Sure did, someone more than capable of turning this into another incredible Samson!

Looking forward to seeing her in the air in a few years...
