• 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.

Good evening folks,
Here is a question:
According to the Acro Sport plans the aluminium trailing edges of the wings and ailerons should befixed to the ribswith 1/4 inch nails.
As Ireally do not liketo put nails in the 1/4 inch capstrips on this location, where they are rather thin, I wonder if it will be sufficient toforget the nails and just glue the trailing edges to the ribs with epoxy?Are there any objectionsto that ?
