The package on the workshop shelf in good company

I ordered the advertised kite train (MBK Multi-Fly Diamonds) on the website. Within several days there was the well taped triangular package, delivered to the front door.

It was a delight to open the package and find three sets of kite skins and spars and the parceled nylon fittings and tail pieces. All that remains is to colour the skins (and Tim, your Fresian cow hide rendition is going to be a challenge to better!)

The thought of using glitter mixed in paint appeals. Then again the old masters had paints based on egg yolk which have lasted centuries.
Diluted paint dispensed through a spray bottle anyone? And let us not forget finger painting for the child within each of us. Once the choice is made and implemented the photos will follow.

Thank you Tim for a well-thought out kite train for the artist in each of us, young or old.
