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".

So, I am planning to build Christian Derefat Vortex, but I wasn't a big fan of the panel layout. 

I imported the vectors into InkScape, a free/open source illustration program (for those of you that didn't know).  I removed the panels and migrated objects onto different layers.  The sail is just an outline now, ready for me to draw panels at will in InkScape.

Because I can't be the only one who is interested in doing this, I figured it might be nice to make the SVG file available to anyone who wants it.

Here's a link: https://docs.google.com/open?id=0ByqX3sN1GD_PVTRPbjlNUjVpc2M

The link points to a file that is available to anyone with the link.  You can get a copy of Inkscape from http://www.inkscape.org

I left in the fabric grain markings from the original pattern so you can use them as a guide for your own panels. 

The page size is now 54 inches by 36 inches, so plotting will require a 36" wide plotter, but in the USA that's a pretty common size.

Enjoy!
