• 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).

Wing walk

Newbie here. Just finished up a set of S1S wing ribs and attached them to the first set of lower left spars. Now the next step seems to be to add the 1/8 w/w on top of the airfoil at the fist two ribs. Doesn’t that ruin the line. Shouldn’t the ribs have made provisions for this? Has anyone done anything different?
