Congrats! Very Happy

But I have to say, that I don't really like this model:
- wrong tail
- too short wings
- the head is too big
- and this strange, buckled pose No
have a look: www.4everstatic.com/bilder/674xX/tiere/vogel/papagei-ara,-flugel,-flug-165435.jpg

Congrats, despite its flaws I like it all the same. Something about the expression and colors just appeals to me.

Congrats! As for the wings and tail may be too short because Papo might have been afraid of them being fragile if they were made longer. If they were made longer, they would have also had to be thinner which would mean breaking during shipping, etc. It could also be that the figure was sculpted from a captive ara, which would explain the short wings and tail which are clipped to prevent the bird from flying too far. I can't find an explaination for the pose, however Suspect

Congratulation Fernando Very Happy

I'm not a fan of this one but you found two good points, nice pose and colors, even if I agree with both of bad comments here Laughing Wink
