• 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).

Turtle deck Skin

Has anyone ever cracked the turtle deck skin while trying to form it to fit over the turtle deck bulkheads. If so what did you do? I have a crack about 4" long right on the centerline at the front bulkhead. No way to glue it back together so it won't come apart when I bend it over the bulkhead. Is there a fix or do I get another piece of plywood and do it over?
