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".

Several years ago, I documented my B'zar 2011 build... quite extensively.  One of the choices I made then was to alter the nose of the kite.  That process resulted in a shorter leading edge (sail and frame) and caused unknown alterations to how the kite was intended to fly.  Now, a few years later, I have secretly completed a second B'zar that has not been altered from the original 2011 plans.  Tomorrow I will put the bridle on and then I will begin the wait for a sunny day here in Seattle in which I can take them out and compare.  Regardless, here is the new sail all framed up.

An unusual color combination that shouldn't work, but does!

Nicely done sir.  Smiley

I was on the fence about the colors!  I played around with quite a few variations.  I obviously settled on this one, and am pleased with how it turned out.  I am anxious to see it in the sun. 

Glad you like it, and thanks for the compliment.
