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".
Questions or concerns? Contact Steve ... just drop an email to: forum.gwtwkites@gmail.com

Number 12 is the 'Vector' by Wolfgang Schimmelpfennig.

Plans were published in his superb book 'Making and Flying Kites'

Thanks for posting the site here.

I updated the page, all known kites are replaced by other (new) unknown kites.
If one of you has any idea of which model a kite is, please let me know.

Thanks in advance and keep 'm in the air!!
