Nice colors Bryan. Now you'll need to get some Ichi pics flying.
You can never have too many cool kites ;)

Now if I could just fly them with any grace.  :-[
I really wish this would have came in time for the Roseville Kite festival. Then i would also have some decent pictures. Oh well, next year.

I don't know. I tried to catch a lot of the small details with the pics. I should have asked Ken while he was walking me through the setup. I just need some wind.

The planned changes were more to streamline construction than anything else.  Most of them didn't make the cut, so #33 is pretty much identical to your #32.  Did change a couple curves slightly to make it tension more smoothly.

Bryan, glad you like it.  Now get it in the sky! ;-)   Do the colors match your tails pretty well?

Hi Ken
Thanks for the cool kite. The tail is more bannana yellow, while the kite is more gold. Once it is in the air I do not think the difference will be noticeable. Now if the rain would stop.
