yeah :lol: I'm still toying with the idea of the Spined Dragon approach to wings, see how it goes when I get onto sculpting the bugger 8)

Oh and crumb, I made set lengths for the long bones in wire to keep proportions correct and avoid bendy limbs. Bulked out the torso with old sprue and wire and covered with left over gs blobs


nice idea on the sprue!! got quite a stack of that................. did you post pics anywhere of your sculpt, always, always keen to see what others are upto, all
goes in the inspiration and motivation bank 8)

I know a good way to make large open wing membranes that aren't flat (ie made with plastic card) if you need it. But put a curve of any sort in there and you increase the amount of silicone you need exponentially, so flat is much cheaper.
