    This is a clay and aluminum mockup of what was going be my next bird sculpture.I never got around to doing it in wood but all is not lost.I love this position a bird takes when on the wing,it has a real sense of motion.
    Steep turn,wings straining under G forces,tail twisted beyond the vertical etc...
    (Note how the head of the bird always stays level no matter what position it takes in the air,this is natures artificial horizon!)
    Well when it came time to put the Bleriot in the air.......can you see the similarities? Although this bird may never fly,the Bleriot will !
    Of course the Bleriot in real life would never assume this flight attitude on purpose, but hey this is art so you do what pleases you.

    Please note:
    I know that I have been pushing the envelope a bit recently in subject matter, especially for the aircraft guys.I ask that you remain open minded on this as I really do believe that modeling is an art form and if we remain open to new ideas no telling where it can take us in the future.What I am doing here is not better but just different.I know that putting the model sculpture idea in a traditional type model forum is a little rad but I think that it is fun to explore others possibilities for model building in the future.
    I want to thank the administrators and moderators of the forum for their allowing me this opportunity and my forum buds for their patience .Thank you all !
    Cheers. John.

    Please, just for a minute,lets look at this as a model sculpture.This is such a great piece , it symbolizes everything that I think a model sculpture should be.It rises above any particular genre of modeling and truly is art in my opinion.
    The car is a futuristic rod ,the stone an old piece of slate and the storyline is one of the best I have ever seen.The strain of the rear chain says it all ! No dramatic spinning smoking tires,no driver, this piece has a life all of its own.A title is not even necessary or required,the viewer is instantly involved with this piece.The symbolism of the stones cutting edge and its pattern and colors is almost like it was created for this ,perfect.Excellent composition and design ,artistic license at its best.

    For my non-car modeling buds,moderators and admin I promise to restrain myself in the future.It was just that this piece is so symbolic of the kind of model sculpture I am talking about, I just had to show it .
