• 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.

Hi, I'm new to this forum and rebuilding Puppy's Feet. The aft fuselage had original wood bulkheads/stringers but since disassembly 23 years ago and many moves, the wood parts and pieces are gone. My plan is to rebuild in wood. Two questions; 1) What determines the inner dimension of the bulkheads, thereby setting the width? 2) Do the stringers actually sit slightly proud of the bulkheads so as to keep the fabric from touching them? Per the plans it looks as though they are flush.

Thank You
