So I had blogged about this big lightning bird model before over at lost hemisphere once before. Well the model finally came out, and I caved and picked it up. The model is gorgeously detailed, was very specific in its assembly and was a bit of a pain to glue to a resin base. But wow, is it cool and Big. So I timed myself and spent 2 and a half hours getting things done. Which when all is said and done, is not a bad rate for such a gigantic model. I forgot to snap a pic with another model by it, but my hand is in the picture holding it. Also photographing it has been difficult due to its size. I had a what I thought was going to be a whoopsie when some ink wash landed on the feathers, but it made the feathers look so much better, I turned my whoopsie into a happy little accident that turned out to make me happy with the end result.
