• 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.

Want to have rear cockpit sliding canopy like old Pitts S-2-A style.
For example, Dave Ebershaft's (sorry for barberizing his last name) skybolt had a canopy like this. Is there anyone who knows where I can buy one?
Pitts S-1 plans have detailed construction drawings, Airplane plastics will blow the canopy, but I don't want to build it. A Pitts canopy is too small
scale wise, so you can't just bolt an old Pitts sliding canopy on. You really
have to construct one yourself proportionate to the Skybolt fusalage. Does anyone have one for sale, or know of one?? I'm tired of building, my Bolt is almost finished, would rather not build this if I can buy it!!!!
