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).

Hello Folks..... I just acquired a Skybolt...complete bird, but, windscreens in bad shape!
Anyone have an ole set in good condition? I figure someone has a set taken off when they went to "Full Canopy"...... Thanks, Dan

Maybe try something like this, it may work for you.
I think trying windshields from a different Skybolt may not fit

Steen SkyBolt website has them available new. The time spent cleaning and fitting a used set may very well off set the cost of a new set.

Stress lines? Maybe the screw holes weren't large enough?

Since you have the originals... they look like they're wraps so they should be pretty easy to make. Use them as a pattern for the new ones and make sure the holes are larger than the screws going into them so that they don't crack.
