Two kites tiling from a pentagon

Carrying on from the previous post, David Bailey confirmed that the pentagon is in fact a type 1, because of two sides being parallel.

If a cut is made from corner A to the centre of side d, two kites result, one narrow, one wide.  I believe that many chaotic and unbalanced 7-fold radial tilings can be produced by using these two shapes in combination.

Below is an example of a an odd looking 7-fold radial tiling seed.  There are three other permutations that I can see.  The clumps will always contain four narrow darts and three wide (equates to three pentagons and one narrow dart).
