Tail Printing

At some point late in the development process plans were apparently underway to print instructions on the rudders of the kites themselves. Here is an extract from one of Paul Garber's wartime memos:

Assembly and adjustment instructions were to have been printed on the sides of the fin, so as to be readily available to the user, regardless of whether he had access to the Manual.

These examples are from the Garber Papers at the Smithsonian. The labels appear to come in pairs, one for "Adjustment", one for "Assembly".

Wooden, Mark 1
Metal, Mark 1
