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".

That's the best scale model ever. It magical.

Scale motion is one of my most favorite things ever. I've found kids to really enjoy it when I use scale motion with their toys.  Like a toy truck that is laboring to go up hill.  Or drift an toy car around a corner in slow motion. So funny and fun.

That is waaaaaaaaayyyyyy, cool!
And for a model freak like me, I could hangout there all day long just looking at everything
and checking out the detail on everything. That's A LOT of patients and very hard work to make something like that.
I thought a month to build a car, plane, or whatever I was building at the time was a long time, (but it looked real) I guess not.
