After several months in development, the Vixen is ready for prime time!
The Vixen was already in its third generation when I showed it off on Facebook last September. Four generations later, it’s finally ready to be released into the wild. I’m pleased to announce that I have three of the first “production” Vixens on my table, and expect to have them completed this afternoon. They’ll be ready to make their way to new homes come Monday.
There is no real rhyme nor reason behind the colors of the kites that will make their way to the shop at BMK. Mostly, it’s going to be a matter of making up a few attractive color combinations as time allows. This gives me a chance to try out new color schemes, and gives you a chance to shop for a new kite at 03:00 in your PJ’s. As much as I like these first three, I’ve already got ideas for other interesting combinations and variations.
I’ve got a good start on setup and tuning instructions, and will be working on making sure all the information is updated over the next couple days.
If you’re a subscriber to my email list, you should have received an advance heads-up on the Vixen going live a couple days ago. If you’re not currently a subscriber, please take a moment and sign up. You’ll find a subscription form at the bottom right of most pages on the site. I promise to not flood your inbox with mail, and it’s easy to unsubscribe if you choose to do so.
Without further ado, below are three of the first Vixens. You can find larger images, and more information on the Vixen shop page.
