Here are mock-ups of the three new colors:


I should note that both of the Celtic Ice Fades don't seem quite so dark in person. Especially of course when back lit. :)

Tom, I would suggest the original "BKF Custom" thread. There you can see all of your specials.



I just posted them here:

By now all of the pre-ordered BKF Rev's have been shipped and or delivered.

After the first batch of kites were shown at the our BKF, some fliers commented to me that they wished we had done some customs with more purples and blues in them. After thinking about it I couldn't resist adding some new colors into the mix. The results are two new Celtic customs with purple-blue fades. In the first version the fade runs across the panels, much like the first run Celtic Rainbows. The second version has the purple-blue fade running from the top to bottom of the panels. This version intrigued me so much that I tried a third design with a red-orange-yellow (Fire) fade running from the top to bottom of the panels.

Both of the Purple-Blue fades arrived this week. We are still waiting on the Red-Orange-Yellow kites.

"Long John" in the Open Topic "I think my Berkeley kite may be here" thread suggested that this thread would be the best place for my mock-up images of these new BKF Custom Rev's.

...I received my aquarium-one on Tuesday and flew it yesterday! Luv it!


Hey Gang,

Glad the kites arrived safely, and that you like them.

Where would be the best place for me to post images of these new colors? In one of the original "BKF Custom" threads, here, or in a new thread?

Thanks,

This is Tom McAlister from Highline Kites and the Berkeley Kite Festival. Though I am not a regular contributor here, Lolly from the factory suggested that let you in on a fantastic surprise we have planned. A limited run of BKF Custom Rev 1.5 SLE's. It is a project that I have wanted to do for a long time and I am extremely excited about it.


Not sure where the best home for these is but here are three pics of the finished kites in action. I finally got to see these three in action on Saturday.

Earth and Lava Gold are available of immediate delivery!

Cheers,

Tom
