4882 Sky warder
There were several versions of this model until I was satisfied enough. The design is centered around the wings but it was difficult to find a good balance between the body and the tail. I kept tinkering with the model over the course of more than a day, which is very unusual. As I didn't have any other ideas at hand I had it sitting on my table so I would look at it it frequently. That kept me going in an attempt to improve it further. I don't like abandoning something which has enough potential to be a good model. It is still far from perfect. The tail is a bit extravagant on one side, but very striking on the other side.
