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 don't know if Bambi would approve of any version of this beautiful model.

Is the wingspan around 8 feet?!  Huh

I wonder if that kite is as obedient in a turtle as a Masque. Undecided

I'd like to flip-flap that in high winds. Huh

Take it to the top of the window and go insane into a perfect tip stab landing. Tongue

...remember to tip your bartenders.....

Is this the front side of the kite?  The back side will be just as impressive that one can only imagine... Wink

That's not a model you can be heavy handed with.
They require finesse, if you want to get optimal results.  Wink
