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".

I thought I'd post a link to the photos album I'm setting up during my latest kite build. That is, I'll be adding photos as the build goes on. I suspect this will take me 30-45 days.

It's a 525 flow form kite with a stepped trailing edge. This requires that the top skins break out from the top of the outer rib and get sewn down the side of the outer rib.

The long pieces of fabric are 25' long. I've found that my bobbin hold less then 50' so it requires that the bobbin be reloaded after every seam.  Smiley

In the future I'll need to put together some tails but in the meantime, after the kite is completed, I'll be making drogues. The drogues will have 4' openings and be 15' long.
