Calling all WWII enthusiasts! Here is a "Gibson Girl" box radio kite for your consideration! These sea-rescue kites were used to carry the radio transmitters up in elevation to call for help. This box kite still has its original box! Interestingly, these were reffered to as Gibson Girl kites even though the name was really more for the hourglass shaped radio transmitters that the box kite carried. A friend of mine found this stowed away in the house she bought! The last picture is not mine, just sharing what it looks like assembled. *This is for the kite oniy, no radio transmitter. The last photo of the listing is not mine*
