A figure I've been wanting to do as I've always admired these majestic birds. I don't think a wedgetail has been done before but correct me if I'm wrong. Will be painted in the next couple of days.

Finished the Wedgetail Eagle today.. I've got a lot more photos including the frame and layering on my Facebook page.

Thankyou Costicuba, Lucky Luke, Fisva, Sky's the Limit, Suzanne and many others for your earlier compliments. I'm very proud of this model!

It looks beautiful and very realistic. Good job with the painting :)
I would like to express my opinion for only one thing. To improve a little bit the legs. I found pics of that bird and YES, his legs look like that sometimes..but for me, it looks like he is  wearing pants :)..I apologize for this comparison.
I realy like your job with the  Wedgetail Eagle... and I have a suggestion only for that. Maby if you put more plumage on the backside of the legs will look even better.

I just made it for my own collection and haven't planned any copies. I did send a picture to S&N though and they seem to like it so maybe they will be interested in producing it later  question

Many things I appreciate in this topic. First a superb work and although it seems perfect to me, I enjoy seeing artists, with their trained eye, helping each other to find an even better result. Very Happy Being such an emblematic Australian bird, I also hope Science&Nature accepts the challenge and make it. I love the Animals of Australia collection and I would love to see this sculpting in their large sized series! Very Happy Jason, we are lucky having you here sharing all these masterpieces with us, the level of detail is so great that just like Andreas, I thought it was much bigger. cheers
