Back to the automata this week. This is a flying character similar to one I saw on an Internet site. The original was called "migrating elephants". This interpretation was inspired by a a local airline, Porter, who uses a raccoon as a mascot. I tried it as precursor to maybe building one with multiple figures.
He needs a more work on his body and linkages. Time permitting, I hope to work on the drive mechanism today.
Automata is a creative blend of my life interests , engineering, art and woodworking.
