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 stands at 77 kites and 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.

3-panel Mk II

It's been very quiet on the Peter Powell kites collection front, but I guess that as the collection grows, there are fewer and fewer 'new' kites to add to the collection. 

But that doesn't mean none! This is a 3-panel Mk II, which I stumbled across, for sale on Facebook, and as I don't have any 3-panel Mk II in the collection, you can guess what happened next ...

Flies very much like any other PP Mk I / II kite, as you might expect. It didn't come with the yellow tail, but I felt a yellow tail would look best on the green kite. 

And that's #77 in the collection ... will I ever get to a 100??
