So Kite #85 is going to be a theme kite, Dual Perspective Mesh. It will start out in Black and White (Leading Edge Black with White Screen) quickly move to color, (Black and Rainbow) Some are "over the rainbow" and in the middle will be a Yellow Brick Pattern, almost like a road.  Kite name will be NIKA.  The Cool side has been sewn and will be the pattern for the Warm side.

The Yellow Brick pattern didn't seem to work for the center panel. LE is completed. Trying other ideas.

YBR to the Emerald City perhaps?? Open for suggestions??

I did away with the Oz. I just didn't want to try and do any more fine detail in the center of the kite. Decision made and continued with the build. Ready to Frame and Bridle..

Bridle test went well but I will have to add something to fix the bit of flutter along the trailing Edge. The longer black strips want to flutter a bit. May add a separate inset, panel, or additional Design element in those spaces.. Kite is quite flyable but there will be more to come.  This one isn't quite "finished" yet..
