rhombox - a high flying classic design
The standard 2 celled rhombox (above centre right in decorated form and below centre left in plain form) is based on an original rescue kite used by the RAF and is very stable in a wide range of winds. It is 1m tall by 1.15m wide and flies on 50lb line. It has been used in an attempt on the British altitude record in train with other sizes. The flame rhombox (above right) is another decorative version of the original kite. We also make a triple celled rhombox (above centre left) which is 1.5m tall by 1.15m wide. The interference box (below left) is an eight celled variation. This too is 1.5m tall by 1.15m wide and is flown on 80lb line. When built with all the cells the same colour it gives a striking interference pattern in the sky as it moves. The rainbow version shown also looks stunning. A double rhombox in both plain form (above left) and one off appliqued versions (below right) are also made. Many different colourways are available across the rhombox range and 1.5m, 2m and 3m rhomboxes have also been made, All can be appliqued to great effect in many interesting designs. STOP PRESS. We have now built some double triples.
