the series started some time ago, and I didn't find the wings of the previous swan (strange, how could I forget?), but here is something else about swans : a couple, one resting and one extending wings :



and a couple of Widgeons (from Grumman, I mean) :




they crossed into, on the one side, a resting Widgeon and one extending wings :






and, on the other side, swans doing the same with Widgeon wings ...

These are wild! I really like them because its pretty rare to find a model of an animal airplane mix, no I get to see a lot more

... so are we ever going to get to see red, yellow, blue tiger stripes or camouflage?

For some reason, that last line makes me think of F11F-1 wings, and other bits, mated to a Bengal tiger.

like this?



the camouflage pattern is inspired by a dutch Fokker seaplane of the 30s : the black and white photograph did not exclude this interpretation ...

here is another bird/aircraft : I had a head left from a previous mix, coming from an american eagle :



ans I had in mind a picture I saw somewhere on the net :



so I picked a quadri-jet in my stash, of an appropriate scale :



and here is how it looks :

I can't help it, but the geese really made me chuckle!

Not only are your talent and skill completely off the charts, but your sense of humor is a delight as well!

Outstanding!!!
