Middle section will be red. and will hopefully get that down this weekend.
looks like you did a nice job covering her. The other problem with using the vinyl esp with nothing supporting it is that is not very durable. Aftering gluing it directly to the foam peeling it off isnt gonna be fun for future repairs and even landing in straw can be enough to punch through it. Looks like you have a nice build going. Id find a nice solid surface for that bird to land on and dont be crashing.
