• 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).

Hello
I bought a set of wheelpants from a WACO to use on my bipe. I am planning some modifications and am strongly considering laying up a couple of sets of duplicates rather than modifying the originals.


I've done some composite wet layup before...but its been awhile. I'm trying to select the materials needed for the project. Would someone with experience in composites give me some advice on what type resin, fabric, and filler would be best?


I have worked previously with Aeropoxy, E and S Glass, and featherfill butisee a lot of other options...kevlar,alphapoxy, etc..
