It is so perfect it looks natural.
If you were a woman, I would conclude "You are Mother Nature!" :thumbsup: ;)

Another set of marvellous models.  If you are ever stuck for inspiration, is there any future in a camel (Sopwith)  and a camel (dromedary)?.....or a jaguar (cat) and a Jaguar (BAe)?

aha, that would be nominally nominalism  :o
I showed the LP cover by the late 60s group Sopwith Camel, which shows exactly that, and would definitely be do-able in 3D plastic;
it would be quite a series to extend that to others ... like with beluga, fox, aardvark ...

That'll be a half-hoof then?  ;D ;) :thumbsup:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Or perhaps a Hoof-Track.  (sans track but oh well)

Yes - I love the concept and the lateral thinking. In relation to the "hoof-track" name, it is quite logical because the vehicle does leave hoof tracks,

Well done

At (French) school, I learned that animal logic was Darwinian evolution, but I don't remember the teachers saying this included technical plastic/metal parts... ;D ;)
