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 used the 3inch one that is said to be a little thinner then the 2inch one. It's very easy to saw indeed, however I think that also the 2inch, being 0,04 inch thick (1mm), should be relatively easy to work.

The European's are using "Dolly (or Lorrie?) Curtain Fabric" that's the tarps used to enclose truck trailers with open sides. Don't know of a source for it in small amounts.

Cordura works well, for an easy supply check your second hand stores for old luggage or a heavy backpack, hot cut it to shape to seal the edges.

If i remember correctly.. it is called pvc coated tarpulin right?. Well i google through and found pvc coated cordura.. would it be suitable to be used as a nose piece?

Sounds like it would be fine, some of the Cordura's have an inside coating for waterproofing I wonder if that is what you've found, it's often a silvery color. There may be some with an external coating like the tarpulin fabrics if you like that look. That's a personal taste, I didn't but checking out Denny's TNT's that stuff definately looks pretty bulletproof and with the coating may not require hot cutting to keep from fraying. That's the problem with Cordura off a large panel, you have to hot cut and it leaves a very hard edge that really pops if you hit it with the sewing machine needle and I've had it cut the thread, that's why I usually prefer something with a finished edge like the webbing GWTW sells.

Did you have a chance of flying it a little longer? Would you share your opinion about this kite with us?
Thanks!

Werner, weather is getting better finally, this weekend I went to my mother in law, but unfortunately I forgot at home the B'zar......too many kites and too many kite bags, so I made some confusion when I chose the kites to put in.....arghhh....I hope you'll forgive me. I promise to fly the B'zar this weekend if weather will help yet.
