A blog detailing our collection of Peter Powell kites, and chronicling our flying of these kites. Plus a bit of PP kite history thrown in. Our collection to date can be seen here. I am keen to expand the collection, so if you have an old Peter Powell kite, whether made in the UK or the US, gathering dust and looking for a new home, why not get in touch? Depending on the kite (does it bring something new or different to my collection?), its condition (is it flyable? how much TLC does it need?), and the price you ask (+ shipping if from outside the UK), we may well be able to do a deal.

Further bag expansion necessary!

If you're a regular reader of this blog, you may have noticed my steadily-expanding collection. And you may also know that this collection lives in three HQ Proline bags. Well, the collection has now reached a level where it doesn't fit anymore in three bags .... Solution? Get another bag, again from Kiteworld, of course!

The modern Mk III Stunters already had a bag of their own, and now the older UK-produced Mk I and Mk II Stunters are split over two bags: one for 'single' kites, and one (with the feathers) for kites we have a pair of, so those we could potentially fly at a festival as part of our Flying Fish demos.

Will this be the final bag expansion? Surely not; the bag with American PPs is getting pretty cramped as well now ...
