Hello and welcome vlieger!
We are very happy you are here. You have made some amazing kites!
Did you use the Rowlands plan for your frog? How did you create the huge pattern to cut out the material?
It looks beautiful, does it fly well?

My mother is Flemish also. She met my Father in Brussels and my older brother was born there. I was born in the USA and I only speak English. :(

I also like this little kite:

But I will ask more questions later (about the swallows, and the Peter Lynn Pilots--have you seen the "German version" without the center keel? and ...)

That really is a fantastic collection. (even a " :revspin: " purple star)
I'm quite impressed, and feel quite humble about my projects in light of this.

I have done a lot of searching and I can't find a plan for the basket kite.
Do you have a link to it?
:thanks:
