• 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). Annual membership also comes with two BiplaneForum.com decals.

I'm at the point where I'm ready to build the center section for the three piece wing (aka Skybolt Delta/Radial.)

Based on the theroy that part A needs to fit part B, I'm thinking that I shouldn'tbuild the center section until I have the spars on the Upper Wings and everything locked into position. The spar distance is already a given on the wings (Part A) and this will need to match the spars on the center section (Part B.)

Make sense ?
