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.

Looks great.  Thanks for the generous addition to the collection of free plans.

Forgive me if I am being ignorant.  What are the two target points on the trailing edge?  (on the outer ends of panel D)

ignore them, those are control points for sail design :-)
The only important points are standoffs marks :-)

Simply beautiful color schemes!!! They outperform the original scheme!! I like them!!!

Are you building the std or the light version?

Should I update the project with panel E divided into stripes?

Thank you!  I'm glad you approve.

I'm building the light version this time.

Should I update the project with panel E divided into stripes?

If you like this panel layout, please use it and make it available for anyone else.

I extended panel H and panel G past panel C.  Then I made the border between panel D and panel E parallel to the new section of G.  Next I made the border between panel E and panel F go in a similar direction to panel C (not quite parallel, a little bit more "radial"), and added a stripe.

Jonathan, I'm wondering if you'd be willing to share the CAD files so that I could update the panel design for my own use?  I fully intend to build a lightweight version of the kite and really like the panel layout mods that Kevin came up with.  Or, if you intend to update, I will wait for the newer PDF format.  Either way, I'm looking forward to adding Lilith to my build list.

Kevin, you color schemes look great!

Ok, if you need I can share dwg files. I will update tje current version with the beautiful color scheme, leaving the old one for the lazy builders.

Remember thar for the light version you need: 2 x 2PTs for upper leading edge, 2 x P1Xs for lower leading edge, 2 x 3PTs for lower spreader, 5mm exel for upper spreader, and a long 3PT or a short 3PT+ 1.5 cm P200 + 6.1mm hollow ferrule for spine

DWG files would be excellent. And I think I've got the frame items in my current supply.  Thanks!

Both versions are available. The simpler one, for lazy builders (like me Cheesy) and the more complex for hardcore builders (26 panels)
