A swallow train consist of 10 smaller swallows (1m => black-purple-white) and 1 larger lifting swallow (2m => black – white –purple) Based on a design of Robert Van Weers (New Zealand). Robert was inspired by a Japanese swallow mobile and a plan published in a German magazine. The plan of Robert has less spars, a different keel and no connector for the spreader.




A home made swivel. It works perfect. the length of the branch is one and a half the size of a bird wing. The distance between two swivels is triple the length of the branch.
