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".

I got all  five xmas kites done and flew, now the art work starts. The delta that you see have been modified.  All the spars are on the back side, the tail connecting
loop is all so on the back side. There no keel. So that leaves the front of the delta wing kite unobstructed view of the front, where the art work will go. I was over joyed how the kites flew. very little wind and and they sail great.

I see on the right lower side the airfoil is not perfect. It is this one only, I am going have to see why that is.






here the last one




Now to the hard work, I am no way shape or form an artist. It is very hard for me to make some thing that looks nice.

Bye for now

Good-looking canvas for art to appear on....   There probably are some clip art pieces or scrapbooking patterns that would be a good place for ideas and patterns....

I registered, because it would not let me view the pics. No response from the board moderators, yet.
