I have done the Canon Bald Eagle, but when I built it, I used my standard card stock, and the bird suffers for it, especially in the wings

I had to reinforce the shoulder connectors because the weight of the wings would collapse and crush the connectors.

Johan Scheft is shortly bringing out a book of bird models.

It will be available in Amazon. Content unknown at this stage.

My build of Cannons Bald Eagle, Great model, a little bit of trouble with
wing spars ( hard to understand how they fold ) and I used a straight spar attachment for the wing so they don't look so forward swept.....Rich

Johan's Wren ...



I had to use my pinkie finger to get inside this lil' Beauty. It was a challenge, but I got there.

The Barn owl is a nice pose, but a very simple model that comes up disappointingly small. Must be around 1:6 scale ...



I'm now working on the two Canon Snowy Owls. The male is done but I'll not publish his picture until his mate is finished.

Love that Eagle Rich. Definitely think I'll be making one after seeing that.

Johnny.

Here is another little bird model made many years ago. I forget where it came from.

John, that wren and owl look good. Yep, the barn owl is a bit small, but lots of people like the little model. I have given away a few of them over the years.

Hey VK,

Have you got a url for the Epson Hummingbird?

I'm not finding it. All I'm getting is references to their hummingbird inks, like what my RX685 used to use before I fitted the CISS unit.

Johnny.

Found it ... http://www1.epson.com.hk/files/minis...ummingbird.pdf
