Well I made a couple of Toucan's yesterday but have not had time to photograph them as yet.
Will do tomorrow and post them, I feel a little naughty as I have not bought the instructions.
It was just that I got fed up watching the football last night and was going over the forum and
saw Darren's post asking if anyone had made it so thought I would have a go.

Thanks for the review Darren. Much appreciated!

(and it's okay Graham Leach :P ... hmm, very bad dutch joke)

I did one on a hat recently, using a different colour beak with Orange and Coral.

Now I feel even more guilty and your bad dutch joke did make me laugh.

I have the two toucans ready to post, I just sent Patrick 7 euros as I felt uncomfortable making the design without.
Will be interesting to see how his construction went...................that is if I open the PDF.

Patrick just sent me the PDF, I have not looked at them.
I made the toucan on Saturday night but did not take a picture till Monday morning.
I made two versions as I was not happy with the way the beak and head sat in relationship to the body.
And I think the beak was to small.

Version one.

Thanks for posting the 'pre PDF receiving' toucans..
They both look good as birds in general or starting points for other bird species.
The first one kinda reminds me of a puffin. Probably because of the position of the beak coming out of the head.

I found that Toucans (plural Touci? ... terribly bad dutch joke) have the top of their beaks just one eye-length higher than the eye itself. Your second version has more bulk higher than the eye-line, which may look less toucany (...) but does have a nice bird appearance as well. Potential for another bird species perhaps...
