• 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).

OK... while I'm finishing up the main landing gear (which is 20 miles from my home workshop) I'm getting ready to start building the Delta wing center section.


Other than the following correction... everything else is ok with the plans ? Yes ?


- The fuel tank needs to fit into the 41.75" opening... it's not 43.75" as mentioned on the plans.


Also... just confirming... the profile for the nose rib is correct. Yes ?


Alteration to the fuselage would be to move the forward tank mounting bushings back 5/8" to avoid interfering with the forward cabane mount and forward sway wire mount.


thanks
Jerry
