• 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).

I have a passion for WWII history andGerman Aces. Although I am ways off from the paint job, I am looking ahead due to me having to choose the correct color for the chromolly tubing when looking inside the cockpits. I was thinking of a scheme that is unusual, totally straying away from the traditional go-faster stripes we often see on planes. I was thinking of a theme loosely based upon Erich Hartmanns ME109 [highest scoring ace of all time with 352 confirmed kills]. I have seen a pic of a pitts in a 1930's US Army scheme which looked cool too.
