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.

Finally built a SS Std for me to keep...  every one I've built prior has gone out into the world!  This one is mine (although I suspect some of you local folks here in Seattle may get a chance to fly it.)



and since it rained most of the day today, here is an artificially back lit view.

Razor sharp look.

Love the pin-striping.

Come move to Las Vegas.  Tongue

What a great looking kite!!!  My kind of color for our Seattle grey sky!!!

When can we have the opportunity to fly it?  This weekend should have clear days for flying. Should Tom, you, and I get together at kite hill?

unfortunately, I will be working this entire weekend.  I may sneak out to the hill in the morning one of these days, but that is a big 'maybe'. We will find time soon though.  I've got a stack of skills I want to learn (don't tell anyone that I'm not a very good pilot of kites!) and a stack of kites I've yet to fly. (What good is a collection of kites if you never fly? it makes me sad!).  Anyway, we'll get a day in the next few weeks I'm sure.  Hopefully there will be some wind, otherwise I'll have to practice on my Invictus ghost that Tom has flown, but I've yet to get in the air. 

Talk to you all soon.

this link should be to download the plans, which are mostly in english with the exception of the text file.  I have never read the text file, but I have built many kites before so I'm not sure if the info in the file will be valuable to a first time build or not.  The most important files are of course the plans (I print the A0 pland and A0 template arrangement) and the .jpg file with frame measurements and bridle measurements.).

We should definitely get together - I'll bring my whole bag.  I've got all of lams newer kites and a few others that you may not have tried yet either.    I'd love to try the 6th sense and your Mohawk as well.  The clean lines of the Mohawk always impress me.   

As far as I'm concerned, spring can't get here fast enough!  Text me if you head out some morning - I've been looking for a reason to take a day off!  Smiley

How about bringing it to sunny Barcelona and letting the warm sea breeze embrace it in its lullaby?  Wink

And also let me try it...  Tongue

Cheers!

Sugar baker,
Do you have any close up shots of the sail and the pinstriping?

At the moment I don't have any close ups... perhaps I'll take some when I finally get the kite out to be flown.
