Trick or Treat

BOTH!!!

Only Concept and colors so far.. I'm thinking of embedding a very few lights in this sail, especially since both orange and purple lights are easy to find right now.. Not going overboard with this build.. just a few lights to bring out the details

Well that's just GREAT 😡. Back to the Solus colorizer. Another color combo I wouldn't think I'd like but I do. Spend more time on those dang colorizers than I like to admit.

I decided to stitch with white.. If the Purple will act a bit as a black light it might pop at night.. I can also try to find some Blacklight LEDs.   Either way, I think the white offsets it pretty well. LE will also be white. Edge Binding (and wear strips) will be orange.

The sewing on the panel is complete.. LE is made.. Time to marry the two and start finishing up this project.

LE Attached.. Edge Binding and finishing remain. I do seem to have a pucker near the center of the LE which I need to address but will wait until framed to see if that makes a difference.. I also needed to add a bit of build to the TE to give it enough belly..

Framed and ready for bridling.. I will need to redo the center of the LE..attachment to the sail. I used a bit too much camber in the sail and the LE doesn't flex it out..

I redid the center section of the LE attachment and the pucker is gone.. This sail is hybrid size. Vertically, it's a standard 1.5 size. horizontally, it's a 96" LE..

Riff, are you addicted to lñkite seeing? Three posts ago (1 day) you said you were putting it away for the weekend ....and yet now you have done major work on it. With as often as you are working on all of them all I am starting to worry about you my friend. :) Said with a smile and knowing how you don't do anything just occasionally or halfway.

Maybe??? I guess it wasn't the weekend any more..  Hoping to finish this one up and get it equipped with a travel frame to fly in New England in a few weeks.
