    Why become a Subscribing Member?

    • 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.
    • 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.

Just wanted to introduce myself. I am just starting a Clipped Wing Radial Skybolt. This is my first project. Should be lots of fun, have been around small planes most of my life. I am planning to power the beast with a m-14pf. I have my capstrip cut. Planning to build the ribs this winter. Trying to finish garage before the snow flies here in MN. Hoping to order my spar material soon.The forum has been great.
