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? Contact Steve ... just drop an email to: forum.gwtwkites@gmail.com

You have some great color combo possibilities there!!!  I believe you meant to say "Lam's AC" not AS.

When I first started to notice all the Lam Hoac kites featured in the forum & on YouTube, I thought "what's with the eyes?!" But the more I studied the kites, the more I realized that the "eyes" are what makes Lam's creations so unique that no other kite shares - you can pick out a Lam Hoac kite in an instant! On top of that, it gives you a personal 'eye to eye' visual of the kite's movement across the sky.

I love the eyes!!

I went to Lam's web site to check out more information on his latest creation & was thoroughly impressed by the AC UL's performance! I know Lam is an excellent flier & a great sport kite flier can make just about any kite look good but I seeing Lam's inputs in the video I watched & the performance of the 'AC' at the same time was very impressive ...so much so that I'm seriously considering having Lam build one for myself.

I've never been a fan of the "eyes" on most of Lam's prior kites ...With that in mind ...and discovering/seeing he's made the 'AC' without eyes.

I decided to try out some color combos ....altering Lam's photos in Photoshop ...and came up with a few color combos I'm considering if I decide to place an order for one.  Here's what I came up with in black and white variants. Will possibly do a few in yellow as well but don't think a yellow one will offer as many variants!

Thank you for the Newport idea.
We haven't been to Newport for many years but hopefully will be back before too long. 
We are going to Martha's Vineyard in October to visit our daughter though and I may take a couple of kites.

I don't know if Bruce is still around, but he always was up for email exchanges. Shoot him questions and see if he still responds. A really good guy.

Looks like the Forum on fighterkite central is still active. :-)
