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.

I think I have seen this specific color combo  as the New Tech Rhapsody.   Grin  (See DIRECT LINK REMOVED. The site is about the "Hazard", but it includes a vid or the Rhapsody flying.  I know that Premiere and New Tech both make a dynamite selection of these,  found in other places under "box delta" or "conynes"  sometimes misspelled as "coynes" because that's how it's pronounced.  There are also some double versions which are very flashy and have terrific lift.  I have one and have made several.  They fly reliably in all kinds of wind, including surprisingly light breezes.    Good luck.

Please. No direct link to other kite stores. Il Duce.

Gomberg also makes a nice one, with plenty of choices of colors, makes a nice stack too.

Chris,

This was a color scheme that was popular in the late 80's early 90's. Conynes are great flyers.

That RWB pattern has been a standard color pattern for Sun Oaks through out their products.   Have you tried contacting them?   They should be able to help you with it.
