Finally, finally I'm blogging, so lets keep going!
Ofcourse Pucca and Garu weren't my first kites. Although they were my first "experimental" kites. As in no traditional kite shape or building plan. They are my invention and they love showing this by flying... eh, enthousiastically energetic :-/. Let's just say they need a watchfull eye at all times.
Although they are not nearly as bad as my attempt at a Fuga kite, a traditional but rare japanese kite shape, gee, I wonder why. This one resulted in a black eye and a split lip.
Bas Vreeswijk was kind enough to supply me with a new building plan so I think I should repay him by having another go at building a Fuga. The 2 by 3 cm picture I used previously probably lacked in some very essential information... Now I also know that Fuga's are meant to be very instable fighting kites. But I'm gonna try anyway, I love Fugu's (the fish that the Fuga kite model is based on).
In the picture above you see Aldo holding my Fuga kite which is a lot safer than trying to fly it. I think it looks cute, so does the kite :-)
