    Here it is, my rendition of a bird I have long wanted to do.
    Many Thanks to all for their kind words and encouragement.
    I used much information that I found on this sight concerning previous builds, Things like antenna types and finishes on the wings and such, and much more.
    My continued Thanks to all that shared their knowledge, past and present!
