Hi Sam, nice bird too :-) By the way, do you guys have any tips on how to make nice bird heads? Do you make it out of a balsa wood block?
Thanks, Arnaud

this is a balsa variation of eddie the eagle which i am going to base mine on not foam wings i find balsa easier to work with .I am just going to use the plans as a starting point and add my own personal touchs to it but this is a long term project as i have a large orni a glider 2m span that im trying to finish and eddie will be three. This is a picture of a dutch mans variation i like

Hi

Although the eagle in the 2nd photos doesn't flap but the realistic aggressive look, and curves in its wings... makes it so appealing .. I love hoe it looks ..

I suppose Mr Robert Musters is the only one in the whole world that is capable of making it flap ... just like his Bald Eagle .. ... And Mr Sean will one day make it alive when it is driven by His NODS Mechanism ... man ... I love to dream

Same here .. something inside me makes me reject any bird-like plane with a vertical fin .. I don't know I just don't like it .. it loses the magic of being a bird when it has a vertical fin ... I wonder why some need one some times and others don't ... a question that I really need to get an answer for ....!!???

Hi Robert - Seems everything comes out out your hand looks perfect. Nice slope but not enough to soar your eagle and hawks but a great place to thermal your Bob Hoey's.
