• 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.

I like how many of the Starduster and Acroduster landing gears are finished off. (See photo) Gives it that old kinda look to the biplane.

How would these fairings attach to the fuselage and wheel pants ?

Do they need to float so that they aren't ripped from the fuselage when landing ?

Anyone out there that can point me in the right direction for finding out ?
