A few of my bird models. I normally build a simple flat sheet depron test model prior to the main build. Although not entirely representative of how the larger version will work, it is useful to get an idea of control response.

Wow .. These birds also need to lose the props and learn to flap their wings ..

Nice work .. especially the vulture

That's a beautiful swan. I couldn't help but notice though..at first glance that looks like some "wacky tobacky" growing there in the field.
