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.

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.
