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).

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 ?


thanks
Jerry
