Model Making and Practical Items for Young Modellers
 Saphire and Dead Mans Chest are kites that are suitable for children. They are the traditional type of kite, great fun on a windy day, and steadier in flight, with less diving and swooping.  Pegasus should probably called an intermediate kite for adults or children.
Skylon and Mercury
are acrobatic, and might be frustrating if given to very inexperienced fliers. They do thrill with their extra responsiveness.

PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN DEAD MANS CHEST is a diamond kite with single line for kite fliers age approx 6 - 8. The graphic design of this kite is straight from the film and young folk really seem to take to this kite.

SAPHIRE Alastair (age 8) prepares Saphire Box Kite for another flight. The box design is the most stable kite, suitable for young kite fliers.

PEGASUS is a delta shaped (triangular design) kite with single line. Pegasus is more acrobatic than the box kites, and will swoop from side to side as learners pick up the skills of keeping it up there when the wing tries to push it to the ground.

SKYLON is a very big parafoil kite for medium to experienced fliers. Skylon is supplied with twin lines. A parafoil is something different in kites, it's less aerobatic, being challenging to initially get up, but once up in the sky it is the only kite that can pass the ninety degree vertical mark!  Width 1.35 metres.
