Wow there is too, I agree with Miss B. When you get this update out for these smaller birds, it will make such a difference with the legs back instead of attached forward, it is more realistic,

With a look on the dials in your second sneak peak, I aks myself, if it would possible to mix the different birds to create unique species (50% parot and 50% swallow for example). I know that doesn't make real sense, but maybe it gives a little fun.

Mixing the "big" species dial can work but not always well... what does work better is to... let's say dialing "Parrot" at 100 and then "Swallow-like" wings and "Swallow Tail"... there are literally about 150 different shaping dials

Here's another evolution of a SBRM bird. This time using probably the most difficult (to get right) bird shape I've ever done. The challenge has been to get that stubby look out of the generic model. I think after 15 years, I've finally got it right ;)

wondering: why is there in the parrot and macaw serie no Hyacinth Macaw ( Anodorhynchus hyacinthinus ) ?
there are blue macaws in the serie, but not the largest macaw of them all.

there are blue macaws in the serie, but not the largest macaw of them all.

The remaining macaws not included in "Macaws of the World" are found in other sets. These macaws are: Cuban Red Macaw (TEE2), Military Macaw (Yucatan), Red-and-Green Macaw (Amazon), Spix's Macaw (TEE3) and the Hyacinth Macaw (C&U3).

I should add that I haven't yet updated these older sets... but these should all be done by the end of the year (if things go right).

Wow, that hawk is gorgeous. I would've thought albino too, but evidently not. Amazing.

I've been steadily working on updates... Here's a facelift I've wanted to do for at least 10 years... finally some recognizable finches :)
I have more than dozen other bird updates... I'll try to share more soon....
