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.

The green and yellow one is a ul, p100 leading egde, p100 spine, 3pt lower spreader an 5mm structil upper spreader,

The white cloth is mylar, but not the one we normaly use, it the kind that you use in windsurfsail's. It is a bit heavier than normal. But it was given to me to use, so why not Cheesy

P.s.
I'm still looking for a good idea for the jojo-stoppers, anyone?

To get a similar result to the Kitehouse range and the Benson Superfly, you can use wiring grommets available in a multitude of sizes from auto shops



A single slice from the inner hole to the outer edge, then wrap over the leading edge tunnel.  Poke a small, clean hole in the leading edge tunnel, adjacent to the leading edge spar, where you want the stopper.  Use a cable tie in the groove to secure to the leading edge

Great looking kites.

If they fly as good as they look you are set.

You may always use APA connector:


ps I have noticed from the first pictures that Your LE is pushed "outward" by the US. Check again the positions of APA connectors because I think LE shoud be straight or even pusched a bit inward by the US





last but not least - Great builds!!

I ave thought about using apa connector, but i didn't like the look of it. I wanted a clean look, so i'm going to try the grommets.

About the upper spreader, i'v try to use the measserments from the plan but it was 10 cm to short, it pulled the leading edge to far in. But since you've mentioned it, i am going to check the kites for some improvement., thanks Wink

10 cm is quite hudge difference... are You hure You placed APA in correct place?

I have cut everything according to plan, the US is a maybe 1cm (or less) shorter that it should be to fit the connectors that why it is pulling LE a little bit.
