TRUE STORY: I was getting home for a visit a few years back and my Dad had been watching for us

terrible confused look on his face and his entire nose turned white. He got hit right between the eyes and he said it
smelled mighty fishy.

Thanks Bob!

My mom always said, that It was good luck if a bird pooped on your head.
I thought it was better luck if one did not.

Those Johnathon Livingstone's look unreal, Greg!

I have some 'Mark's Model Works' birds - brass etchings where you form the body with solder. The instructions tell you to use three stranded wire bent in half for the painting 'stick'. In this way when you have finished painting you can trim to length and then form two legs and even unravel a little of the wire to form feet. A small group of us all did bird dioramas on a stand the size of a small coin for the competition at the last NZ convention. It was supposed to be a bit of a joke but we all put in a hell of a lot of effort and all ended up with either bronze or silver awards. The chap who won had a photo of his S-scale white heron blown up onto a projector screen at the awards dinner - and it still looked spectacular standing three feet tall!

As always - loving your work, Greg! Cheers, mark.

Thanks for your post Mark!
Looks like we are both members, of the mutual admiration club!

Here is how the first gulls look, after they landed at the pier.
I also painted the wire beneath yellow to look more like their legs.
And Bob, lots more poop has been added to give it a more authentic look.
