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".

Over the years I have completely run out of superlatives to describe your work Scott.  Of course I guess they aren't really needed.  Your art speaks for itself.

Wow....stunning (again)!!!!!
My jaw had just settled back in from your last bunch....and now it's slack again.....
No disrespect but a Bazzer's Eye's Rev flitting around the Emu would be quite a sight.....

Thanks guys for all the kind remarks.
The Emu is a collaboration with custom 3D printed fittings from Lindsey Johnson and framing input from Ron Gibian.
 It has 55 spars, 2 spreaders and the spine. Some of the spars lead off of other spars making assembly 20 minutes instead of 30 min



I went through several prototype framing ideas before settling on this set up.
