Hoopoe

I saw one of these many years ago and for some odd reason I have always remembered it. I have made a couple of Johan Scherft's free downloads and decided it was time to make one of his more advanced kits.

The kit was quite easy to put together and the instructions were easy to follow.

The bird is 1:1 scale and stands about 9 inches tall.

Cheers
Mike

Thanks Gents.

It's easy when you have a good kit to work with ;-)

Really nice build!

Pretty birds and I like having them around though I have not seen them that much - but they are one of the few birds that foul their nests - hence you don't really want them to nest in the eaves of the house!

I like birds and would never disturb them if they did, but they never have at our house anyway!

Here are some pics I posted of the real thing.......

Thanks for all your comments.

I only saw one about 40 years ago on a small island off the coast of UK. The island was a bird sanctuary and privately owned - strange how you remember little things like that for so long!

Very nice.

I'm just amazed at the plethora of models on this forum. The skills and attention to detail are just amazing.

Well done.
