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".

White kites are like a kaleidoscope in the air when backlit and the panels are individually popping...

^that is a beauty!
I love the effect of individual panels gleaming as the Sun hits the sail from different angles.

Nice pics Steve!  That pair started life as Exile 2PT SULs and were later converted to modded UL prototypes with P100 frames.  One then had its LE and nose replaced as the final Std prototype with an all Nitro frame.  You can tell the Std is in the back with a narrower nose, straighter LE and full size upper APA connectors.

Those are the only two sails now with that layout. I still have one set of the early builds and the rest have all been retired.

Thanks for posting.  Smiley
