Welcome to the GWTW Forum. Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post. If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register? One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet. A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites. Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal. 1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet. There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets". Questions or concerns?

Several years ago, I documented my B'zar 2011 build... quite extensively. One of the choices I made then was to alter the nose of the kite. That process resulted in a shorter leading edge (sail and frame) and caused unknown alterations to how the kite was intended to fly. Now, a few years later, I have secretly completed a second B'zar that has not been altered from the original 2011 plans. Tomorrow I will put the bridle on and then I will begin the wait for a sunny day here in Seattle in which I can take them out and compare. Regardless, here is the new sail all framed up.
I just found out about the Donations Button. Never really focused on the term till today.. I then wondered if others were aware of how easy it is to make a donation... Easier for me good for the site..
Made a donation probably not my last either I appreciate this web site and those who interact on it. Just wish I'd known about the Donation Button sooner... So easy... Thanks to those who keep things nice and neat around here.
Here's hoping others hit that Donation Button as well. On Public Classical Radio here in Michigan, they have challenges for fund raising. I was surprised to find out one didn't need a Pay Pal account either... again Thanks...
100 donations at $50-$100 bucks is a lot of quick cash...
Just in case you didn't know Jorgen builds a great kite.
+1 on that!
I have heard that "not one stick was out of place" and "gaps and spacings were mm perfect" and I thought now THAT is craftsmanship. I've been all over my Seven and it's all true. Even with all the pinstriping, nothing is out of place.
A pink ribbon tribute for October. Just finish taping the panels this eve.
So I said I wasn't going to build more this year after the last set. I lied.
Was playing with the various patterns and colors using the new layout and there are a few sails I just have to build this winter to see them in fabric. The above should look pretty good trimmed with the usual black edge binding and framed up. Will post a finished pic.
