Here is a little story, bear with me...
There is a topic for the Thirteen Colonies Masterpiece kites and who has them, and in trying to verify which one I had, I started to melt down. It was no where to be found. I had purchased it when living in the 'old' house so it had to be moved. I remember hand carrying it as I wouldn't let a mere moving dude, touch it. New House, New Son, fast forward to a photo shoot at the local photo studio. Took a few Masterpiece Series to liven up the background of the photos with the Little Rev Flier. To my memory (and it ain't what it used to be obviously) that was the last time I saw it. I've been searching for the kite ever since the post started tallying their owners. I'd search a little and it wouldn't be there, etc. etc.
I think you are starting to get the point, not quite a melt down on where that !@#$$$%% kite was, did I lose it, did I leave it at a field, did I leave it at the studio, was it gone for good.... AAAAAARRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!
So after I had my little 'episode', my lovely wife calls me at work yesterday (very long search) and says does it look like this and describes it perfectly. I still have it, weight off shoulders, world is good again.
But that got me thinking, these are works of art, no two are identical, and it's not like you can say, hey, I lost mine (or God forbid someone stole one) can I order a new one. We all hear about the missing bag, or stolen kites, one of these could be in it.
So we need a registry and what better place than here.
So I thought I'd start a topic for the complete list of All the Masterpiece Kites.
So here are the designers:
Scott Skinner - 5 Original Skinner
Jon Burkhardt - 5 Hopi
Ron Gibian - ## Rising Phoenix & ## Archi-rhythm
Jose Sainz - ## Stallion & ## Wings
Randy Tom - ## Lady in the Mask & ## Samurai Girl
Barry 'Bazzer' Poulter - ## Sizzle, ## Eyes, & ## Dragons
Eliot Shook - ## New, and different, how do we classify these new works of art?
American Series - Not a limited edition?
Thirteen Colonies - 13
##- Designates that I'm not sure on the edition size, so help out if you can.
If we keep this updated, if any show up anywhere with someone other than the rightful owner, we'll know where they should be living.
So who has them? Chime in with which one(s) you have and Maybe JB will pin this topic so we'll always know where they all are.
I don't know if they are all numbered, but you can post the color scheme, and maybe a picture or two
