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".

Ken is sending this out today. Hopefully it doesn’t get stuck at the border for long.

I also had ken make me a tail as well. I will add more pictures when I get it in the air. I might need to change my avatar from my BMK Mantis to the Ichiban!

I have a few pictures on Flickr of my Ichiban, including some of the different assembly points. I am just down the road from you in Etobicoke if you want some help.

Thank you Ken. Great job once again.

Thanks to Doug for coming out to meet me and taking pics Grin

It was interesting to see how the Ichiban has changed since the ealier versions. Too bad you broke a bungee. It would have been nice to see both our Ichibans in the air together.

Thanks for posting pictures.
