Angel of the North

The Angel of the North in Gateshead. Instantly recognisable to most people now! I put off tackling this build for a while, wanting to make sure I found a way to get the level of detail I wanted. The grid-like structure of the wings and some curvature of the body were essential in my mind. Vey pleased with the overall result, though not the most stable of models! A recent alteration has seen a backdrop of blue sky added which the wings are attached to!
