ribcage is two part left and right. opted to glue the bottom of the ribcage pieces together but not glue to the torso, just in case this model gets painted


wings are left and right. on base showing unattached ribcage. this part takes the most care and attention:

  • glued and set the left wing first and nursed it for about 15 minutes
  • lined up the right wing and body on the 135mm base to check placement
  • glued the legs, the right wing hand and bottom then nursed the model for another 15 minutes, mostly holding it so the wing balanced
  • set in case with cardboard supports under both wings overnight
  • ribcage attached with double sided tape for final photos
