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".

I don't know. I tried to catch a lot of the small details with the pics. I should have asked Ken while he was walking me through the setup. I just need some wind.

IIRC Ken said that he was going to update some of the building of the Ichibans....I wonder what changed on them.......

The planned changes were more to streamline construction than anything else.  Most of them didn't make the cut, so #33 is pretty much identical to your #32.  Did change a couple curves slightly to make it tension more smoothly.

Bryan, glad you like it.  Now get it in the sky! ;-)   Do the colors match your tails pretty well?

Hi Ken
Thanks for the cool kite. The tail is more bannana yellow, while the kite is more gold. Once it is in the air I do not think the difference will be noticeable. Now if the rain would stop.
