Canon Seagull Sailor

Hello everyone! I made my first ever model a few years ago (The Akogare from Canon). I loved the experience, but going back to school put my new hobby on hold. Now that that's over with, I'm working on my second model!

This time I decided to try something more whimsical before I get back to ships, so I've started the Seagull Sailor from Canon. Here is my status so far!

This is the main part of the boat that I accidentally positioned upside down for this photo.

His legs.

Attached! This one was a little more of a challenge because I didn't cut the rectangle where he was inserted into very straight. The paper very much wanted to buckle.

This is where I am currently at. The sailor's body is loose because when completed, he should be able to move as he rows his boat.

So far the most difficult thing I am encountering is my tendency to glue multiple tabs at once. More than once I found myself trying to line up tabs on opposite sides of a box before the glue dried, which made the process way more challenging than it needed to be! But I'm learning.

I don't believe I have ever seen this one built. Looks interesting

I finished!

Here is a picture of the mechanism that makes the sailor row

How ridiculous the seagull head looks in progress. I added a black stripe on the beak to give it a more obvious seagull look. I also attempted to color the hands in to appear more seagully, but I don't think that part worked as well as the beak did.

The completed bottom

The port side

The starboard side

The stern

The bow - here you can clearly see how misaligned it became. Putting the wheels on the axle was a challenge that I did not succeed at. :P

However, it moved! Here is the toy in motion (I hope this gif works)

And, most importantly, I must acknowledge my helper, Kiwi

Overall, a good time, though there are obviously a bunch of mistakes and instances of sloppiness throughout. For my next model, I won't be doing more than a couple hours at once to avoid fatigue and hopefully better maintain the integrity of the model.

Thumbs up

That turned out very good. Those Canon automata are fun to make. People get a kick out of them.

I realised that my comment on the alignment was on the wrong picture. Oh well..

Oh! Have you posted any pictures of Jangers in "For the Cats" ? I love looking at pictures of people's fuzzy assistants. and yes, the model was a lot of fun!

Thank you! I'm just glad that despite being off center it still moves; it is very satisfying. I was going to dive right back to ships but now I'm thinking another moving toy would be better practice.
