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".

great pictures. unfortunately i guess the scale and length of the thing are just impossible to capture in only two dimensions. if you're lucky enough to see one of these in person, you won't forget it. they're super cool.

don't mean to hijack the thread as much as share the awesomeness of a cool kite train. you can see the train from the photo above in this video starting around the 00:14s mark. know the patchwork foil you see flying is at around 150 feet and observe how much farther the train is flying!
