Here you can find the 4.3 plans in dxf ... Sorry for the delay but I had too many project at the same time. The shape is updated following the latest wing trend with bigger LE and lower AR, I will built in the next weeks if I will receive the fabrics. For the bladders I will order them to www.drtuba.eu Gigi on kiteforum, in the past he was really kind with custom orders.

I bought a used singer machine 3232 for 20 euros during covid quarantine, was not working properly, I disassembled it and it had multiple problems of tensioning, hook timing and needle height, I found all the how to videos on youtube (I supposed the old owner disassembled it for some reason and reassembled it not correctly). I had no sewing experience or at least just the basic. The first blue 4,6 one is not perfectly symmetrical one tip has higher AOA than the other, the white dacron one is way way better, i will rebuilt the 4,6 after my holiday in Greece. I designed it with Surfplan and i printed it on A0 paper size for 16€ https://www.surfplan.com.au/sp/downloads/index.aspx.
If you follow the sewing lines correctly it will be simmetrycal.
For the bladders you can custom order them from https://drtuba.eu/product/dacron-adhesive-tape. You can ask to Gigi on the forum.
The only tips I can give you is to use needle for leather(this will help you to not breaking the polietilene thread), a good 9mm 3m double side tape (to pre align all the fabric parts), and to spray the thread in the spools with wd40 (this will prevent thread to stick on the needle with the glue from the 3m tape). I would love to have this tips in advance.

Hello Nemoz GREAT work, I'm doing the same..how does the bladder cost, about? thanks

bladder's cost depends on the size, ask directly to Gigi
