• 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.

Ok, so I will have to build wing root fairings for my S1-C from scratch. Can anyone with experience out there tell me which is the best method to do the build-up; expandable foam, modeling clay etc???? Also, anyone know how far back on the lower longeron they should extend for best results and what weight glass cloth and how many layers in the fairing?

I would appreciate any advise.

Thank you
