• 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).

The Tinkerbell project is progressing well. I have had a few set backs due to my inexperience with the Stewart system finish. Dan Stewart came to my rescue each and every time Ineeded him with expert advice to get me out of trouble. I thank him for that and you can see the results that I have had. Visit my gallery from the forum home page later today to view even more photos of my progress. Oshkosh bound
