The Mark I, our first of two replicas. It is five feet by five feet and has the wood rudder and spars.

The Mark II, the 7 foot tall version is for lighter winds. The photos below show the kite with the Fiberglas spreader. Bob made both a wood spar and the Fiberglas spreader. He decided the Fiberglas was an emergency back-up in case a crash broke the wood spar.
