Good price paid for a clean specimen in its carrying tube.

David,  Yes, I am monitoring eBay.  I did bid forty quid for one a few weeks
ago but was pipped at the post due to being away on hols!

Thanks also to those who emailed me privately.  I have now joined the Yahoo
group devoted to this kite.

The reason I am so keen is that one of these was my very first kite as a
child over forty years ago.  It was given to me by my cousin and was my
pride and joy until a gust of wind parted the string and took it away never
to be seen again.  This started a lifelong love affair with kites and I
would just love to get my hands on another one.
