Well, I am guessing that the two delta's on the right are Premier, probably in the 9' or 11' range. The third delta from the right looks like a Gomberg Shazam in the warm colors, 11' delta.

The Rok.....have to thing about that one but possible a Premier design....very nice rok for sure, I don't recall Premier making that design and from the picture it looks to have some really nice detail in it. Good looking kite.

That leaves the far left kite as the Guatemalan. At first I thought it was a ghost pyro but looking closer shows that it is quite unique. I would love to have a closer picture of it. It appears to be close to a Rok in design but more evenly shaped. Love the tails coming off of it too.

that's my guesses anyways.

I'm going with the kite on the left too.
Is it a traditional tissue paper hexagon, or did you use modern materials (ripstop nylon)?

Modern materials is right Mike. There is no time to waste making a kite, with soft paper and a day later is in the trash, With ripstop nylon this kite is gonna last me a long time. You'll see it At HB Party.
