Gambel’s Quail emerges from blob of clay.

The big buck Quail is on his way. He was on hold for a bit as I had to weld in an additional support- but first had to buy the welder and have all new electrical wired in for the MIG, TIG, and big air compressor- then I could get him going again. He is about four feet tall, and weighs quite a bit- so I needed to stabilize him before going further.
There is a phase of making a new critter, where there is more wrong than right with it and at this scale it takes awhile to make changes. Finally thought, he is getting some life to him. I added a few picts of the buck in his awkward stage, and after those images come the three chicks. I worked them while getting the shop tools set up- they are still a bit too cartoony, but I can bring them around.
Now I need to go back into the hen and bring her along, as now she seems rather “Dove-ish” in comparison to the buck.
