• 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.

Well, we have had a bit of a thaw here today (60 degrees in my barn). Not sure what happened yet to cause the problem, but when I went in the barn to check on things my upper wing leading edge was pretty soaked. Sadly, I did not have the finances nor the time to get any kind of protection on the wings after I finished them, before the cold weather set in.

So, what do I do? Do I just let them air dry and HOPE all is well? Am I screwed? So far no warpage has occured.

Thanks in advance!!!
