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".

Going through my recent acquisitions, I found a Joel Scholz Wasp from 1987.  Not sure of the number.

Anyway, it looks like it has been outside since 1987.  All of the rubber fittings have rotted.  Some of the stitching near the eye has rotted.  In a few places, the ripstop is as thin and fragile as paper.  Numerous splittings along the ripstop, especially in the arms.  It doesn't have a cross piece.

I was going to throw this out, it is pretty trashed.  I am not into restoration, at least to this extent.  I was wondering if anyone would want it, before I get rid of it.
