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".

It is a Tekken

I believe it is the first of its kind. Maybe we will get lucky and see a picture or video of this new creature it its natural element.  Cheesy

OK.  So the frame is a Tekken frame with upper Sea Devil and lower Fearless appliques and Tekken eyes.

Anyway, the kite looks cool.  I would call it Tekken Fearless Devil.

Lam and I had many discussions on the subject of what to call it, and we settled on "Tekken Devil" or Tek Devil.
I kept the eyes and asked him to add the blades at the wing tips for more Tekken identity. I like the way it came out and a perfect alternative for those who are not a fan of the Sabers...
next I believe he has a vented plan in the works for this scheme...

IMHO, that is the best looking kite by Lam I've seen yet and you guys post a lot of pictures of Lams kites. Crisp contrast between the black curves and white sail. Just enough elements of color to complement. Truly beautiful piece of art and we haven't even seen it fly yet.

Man!, I wish you hadn't used the 'secret password' to my kite/bank account.

'Vented' is my downfall Embarrassed Lips sealed Cry

I bet a quick phone call to Lam will get you a Vented std/Light/SUL Tek Devil in just a few days :-)

He builds ridiculously fast...

I realize George Orwell's 1984 Newspeak was not real.

But this phrase has got to be doubleplusungood:

Vented std/Light/SUL Tek Devil

Is that one kite model with all those attributes (as only Lam could do of course),

or is there more than one model buried in there?  Roll Eyes

Tekken Devil has arrived in record time from Canada here in Texas.

Its a work of art in its construction as is typical of Lams Kites. I am told Lam is looking at how to Vent it. :-)


Very nice looking! A nice alternative to the 'original' Tekken with the larger Sabers in the kite shoulders, IMHO!
