Everyone returned raring to go and we had a brilliant day of sculpture and mechanics…

Using all the skills gained on the previous session work proceeded at a furious pace: the bird got a head created from the remaining half of the fishes tail ‘special bike’ frame.

The bird beak and fish mouth mechanisms made from brake calipers, brake cable and brake levers were completed, tested and attached.

The wings were reinforced using brake cable cross bracing.

The fish body shape came together beautifully with additional structure from carefully formed springs sections of copper welding wire.
