I was going thru some old, old, old, boxs and came across some customs that come to find out were the very first. What I found were 3 rev 1s that Scott Skinner of the Drachen Foundation did and gave to the three brothers in the early days of Revolution, wow what a part of kitting history. What a honor if I could get this great mentor to kitting on board for a series of his kites Scott is one of the greatest driving force in this sport that we all love so much and to get him to do a series would be way beyond anything I ever imagined. Im going to find out more about these kite and when I do Ill do another post to tell you all about them and the history of these kites and Revolution so keep posted.............Ben

Your right Monk. I do need to get some pictures of this find, and yes Ant. thats pretty much where my mind is always at, kites. On another note how can we as kite fliers here in the US and Canada get more in touch with our family accross the pond? I want them to feel more part of the REVOLUTIN in kitting that we all are creating, I do not want anyone, anywhere to feel left out, I thoght of perhaps setting up some sort of contest between the family here and the family there to design a t-shirt and then award a one of kite as a prize for the best design, but I am open to all of your thoughts on this matter so please give it some thought...............Ben 8)

Ben,
I sent out some emails to some of the Rev fliers on the other side of the Atlantic and Pacific, in particular Guido Maiocchi in Italy.
I am sure they can drum up some interest.
