Orphan Wala

Tue Aug 20, 2019 7:01 pm

Two weeks ago I saw something sticking out of a garbage can. It appeared to be a kite and I could not leave it there. A quick inspection told me it was a Wala (maybe a knock off). It was missing the spreaders and something had been chewing on a wingtip.
I felt the need to show this orphan some TLC.
Here's the results..

Replaced both wingtip with a rounded piece of RSN

The kite went to a friendly grandfather who wanted a play kite for his grandchildren to play with in the dunes.
He has promised me pictures.....
