Hi folks, you may have noticed that the Smithsonian thread is gone... PayPal has taken exception to r*ffles, i.e. "gambling".

We're working on an alternative method to finish the job, please stay tuned.

It's a sign from the Gods to just give me the kite and save yourself the hassle ;)

Ben,
you might as well fabricate-up the Smithsonian kite with an SUL leading edge sleeve now,
and throw in the race frame too 'cause that beauty is coming home to me!

My Zen should be done soon too, . . . you could save me some freight dough as well?

Now, now, draw it now, right this second, go on draw it now, I dare you, in fact I double dare you, in fact draw it before now, draw it Yesterday, go on, do it, yep, right now. go on.

Then of course you could keep us all holding our breath till Christmas, that is if you are a nasty cruel vindictive Ben.

OK, sensible head on, Ben it is your party, you say when, just make sure it is not TOO long :-)

That is actually a good point. If it is possible, maybe you could hold the skin till we have a winner, they might have a preference in Leading edge?

I say draw now, because depending on who wins this might not be over. Of course Kent has stacked the odds a bit, but there's still hope for the rest of us.
