Flamingo
« on: May 02, 2018, 08:24:58 AM »
We had to make a few Flamingo's on Monday for a shop opening on Tuesday.
The customer sent us pictures from a Pieter van Engen design.

So yesterday I wanted to have a free range play.

This is what we made and to say I do not like the look of it would be an understatement.
Pieter's design is great, my interpretation did not do it justice.

I was not happy with the look of the flamingo that I made, it was all wrong.

Changing things about a little.
The rear body section looks too messy, the knees worked out ok.
