Hi! I'm Tim Parish, the 'kite nut' behind this website.
Perhaps you have seen one or more of my e-books already. People were starting to ask about getting all of the for-sale titles in one hit, so now you can!
That's no less than 41 kites that you can make, all up.
(A download link is supplied for each of the 7 e-books in the Bundle.)
Just in case you are not already aware of the convenience factor with these books....
Just look at all this...
That's a lot of kite info!
Take this chance to save $$$ and time, rather than spending what all the books are worth individually.
The MBK Book Bundle is made available as separate links, one for each book. No installing, no extracting, just PDF files going straight to your hard drive.
Also, you can skip any book you already have, which means you spend less time downloading.
" 30+ years ago, I tried making a kite using the 'instructions' in a free kite-safety booklet. What a disappointment for a young boy.
Your instructions and methods are wonderful. You help the builder to focus on accuracy, without making it hard. Also, you use materials that are durable, yet cheap!"
- David D. (CA, USA)
Now, I will summarize the contents of each individual book, in case you are unfamiliar with any of them...
"Making Dowel Kites - Low Cost, High Flying Fun"
This printable book features an 8-kite series of Dowel designs which use 1.2m (4 feet) long spars. Everything from the big Sled with its eye-catching diamond cut-outs to the Dopero which soars like an eagle on the slightest whiff of rising air.
Also some 2.4m (8 feet) spar designs. A giant Sled, Diamond, Barn Door, Rokkaku and Delta. Most impressive in the air!
13 kites in all.
"Making Skewer Kites - Fun For Every Generation"
This printable book brings together an 8-kite series of 1-Skewer designs and a more advanced 8-kite series of 2-Skewer designs. In addition, there is the Tiny Tots Diamond and a Tetrahedral kite.
Finally, there are the much bigger 3-Skewer Sled and 3-Skewer A-Frame kites. Great performance for a dirt-cheap price.
That's 20 kites in all.
"Making Box Kites - Old Fashioned Fun"
This printable book brings together Skewer and Dowel designs based on the traditional square box concept which flys on one edge. A 1-Skewer Box, a 2-Skewer Box, two Dowel Boxes for different wind ranges and a giant Multi-Dowel Box kite.
That's 5 kites in all.
"Making The MBK Parasail Kite"
This printable book shows you how to make the second of the Soft Series kites.
The Parasail looks like a jellyfish in the air, when made from clear plastic. Quite unusual and unique! Onlookers often comment on it.
The first was the Soft Sled and is available free from this website. The rest are coming over the next few months!
"Making The MBK Parafoil Kite"
This printable book shows you how to make the third of the Soft Series kites.
This 4-cell Parafoil is a simple low-aspect-ratio foil that stays in the air over a rather wide range of wind speeds. Handy!
"Making The MBK Parachute Kite"
This printable book shows you how to make the fourth of the Soft Series kites.
The Parachute is a 14-cell replica of a typical full-size sky-diving canopy. Although modest in it's performance as a kite, it looks great and flies stable right up into the Fresh range of wind speeds.
When the Soft Series is complete, it will be released as the compilation e-book "Making Soft Kites" and will replace the individual soft-kite books in this Bundle.
In the meantime, the value of this Bundle keeps going up, kite design by kite design!
"All About Kites - 'Ask Tim' Q&As"
This contains all the questions I was asked through 2011 and 2012, and all the detailed and sometimes researched answers I provided. A clickable Table of Contents is organized into chapters for easy reference.
Are you are a beginner? Chances are someone has already asked for info that you might find helpful too. Particularly on bridles!
Are you ready to immerse yourself in building, decorating, flying and reading about kites? The Big MBK Book Bundle is just the thing.
