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".

It's not just me, is it ? Those kites aren't the same size as each other.

Well, if it's you, then it's also me .... Meaning the grey one appears clearly bigger to me as well.

The gray one looks larger to me. It also looks to have a slightly different cut to the trailing edge.

There was also a 3/4 size called the Extreme or something. I saw it as a progressive stack also but near the end there was a shot that looked like they were same size, so I'm not sure. It wasn't just you, it seemed very obvious at first then it became more confusing.

I don't think it works. Like that.

Here it's the most distant kite and yet....

Well there's a bit of perspective happening in many of the shots, backgrounds cause optical illusions, lens distortion if it's a wide angle (but it doesn't seem to be that wide) your shot with the kites rotated and lined up show the back kite as smaller. Not arguing with you I saw it too, but many things play tricks on our eyes.
