I just got a used Joel Scholz "signature series " F-16 kite but sadly there were no instructions and I'm having trouble figuring out how to assemble it.  Can anyone help??  Is there somewhere I can get instructions?

I've got all the pieces, I think, but am having trouble as to where they all go and the proper assembly.  I've got some pictures but don't know if that will help

Which one do you have?  The single line or the dual line model?  I own both.   Grin

Correction, I found the instructions for the single line version.  It was in the bag with the kite.

The stunt version comes in a black bag, while the single line version comes in a blue bag.

Got some pix from High for his kite:
Belly shot


top shot


High: is there any bridle on the belly of the kite?
is there a rod that has "eyes" on either end?   I remember that the dual line version that is how the control lines attached to the kite.....

Flew the dual-line version recently:



As thief said, and you can see in the picture, the dual-line version has no bridle, and the lines attach directly to the front spar. Weird kite to fly, without a bridle!

Mine looks identical to the one that "Flying Fish" posted.  I guess mine is a two (or dual) line version.  I'd appreciate the instructions if you have them

Thanks Glenn
