New video: How to make a scenic prop bird for scale model dioramas out of old spare sprue

Here's a video I recorded while I was finishing up The Seahorse. I needed a small prop for the diorama - a little something natural which would help give a sense of scale, and would also fill in some otherwise empty sea in the ocean wave basework.

The solution? Make a 1/35 scale seagull out of some spare plastic sprue.

It's not the most utterly convincing seagull you'll ever see, but it's good enough to tell a little story and add some verisimilitude to the diorama scenery.

Plus it was just kinda fun to make.

Video is embedded below, but in case that doesn't work here is the link:
