• 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).

upper wing done..kinda

My upper is complete except for the leading edge ply. Should I leave off the ply until the wing is rigged in its final place on the plane, to help 'cement' it into the final rigged position? Or fit the ply beforehand? I understand that fitting later will allow me a little tweaking of the wing during rigging if needed, but on the flip side, fitting the ply while the wing is flat on the bench will ensure that it will facilitate in settingthe wing in a flat state, which is really what it should be...thoughts?
