• 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.

Ok, here's the finished result.....the 8-ball started life as a keychain, and the red mixture knob was detailed in part 1 of my posting.

The front quad will be similar, except it will not have a tension knob. The jog in the bottom of the levers will allow me to run them outside of the fuse members, between the fabric and the fuse tubes. Hopefully I can keep the actuator rodsaway from the passengers so they can't grab onto them.....Just in case, I have some straight levers at the ready.

I shined the cover so darn much you can see the reflection of my hand holding the camera.
