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).

Warning xxxx Writes Bad Checks

Hello All,

I just wanted to send a warning to anyone looking at xxxx's S1-11 project that was recently on Barnstormers.

Unfortunately I fell victim to his fraud. I had seen his add on Barnstormers back in November, talked with him, sent him a refundable deposit of 1k. He assured me his project was of the highest quality, so I flew across the country to inspect and box for shipping. When I got there I knew within 3 seconds that this project was junk! The welds on the fuselage were garbage.

So not only did I waste 600 bucks and three days in CA, the personal check he gave me to refund my deposit bounced and I have not heard from him since!

Beware xxxx selling an S1-11 project. He kept dropping the Kimballs and Sean Worthingtons name and saying how they OK'd the project. Total BS. xxxx is a crook.
