big indian fighter
[intro ... 1] [back to pics]

from philippe gallots’ book, ‘making and flying fighter kites’ ... flew first time ... flies in almost any wind ... spins left ... spins right ... does that ‘cobra’ thingy ... and i can turn it on a coin ...

bow: bamboo, hand split and shaped
spine : bamboo, hand split and shaped
skin: metallic [almost see-through] poly-something-or-other ...
i pulled apart and old car sun-shade ... i’m sure this is similar to orcon in weight and ‘feel’ ... the tail is not put on separately, but rather is part of the single sheet skin/sail ...
built: august, 2002
