I built this last summer, its the first project I ever filmed. The wing is all Sapele, with brass and ebony accents. The base is made from rigid foam and rocks from the yard, (I also build diorama’s). its fairly large as models go, 32” long, 18” high, 13” wide, and it does move as da Vinci’s drawing suggests, although it was a fun figuring it out. I am working on a way to show it flapping , thats on the way….

-- Im so impressed with what people can do, and I wonder how they do it. Thats what keeps me doing it.
