    Why become a Subscribing Member?

    • 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.
    • 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.

Randy mentions in the Skybolt Builders Manual that he has seen Skybolts with ribs not offset the required 6.5 degrees. This must look odd, but I can see why on a rare occasion, a builder would give up trying to mark this out correctly. The pic shows how I marked out mine. I marked the stations on the tensioned redbuilder's line.
