Here's the latest.
Kinda like this pattern, though doing it again i'd make the wing more banded.
Hook is a Ronn Lucas Philips Limerick #5.
Generally quite happy. I'd like the wing to be a bit flatter at the back end, and also not pointing up.
ran into trouble again with the roof as i was down to my last couple of mallards. Need some **** hot stuff going forward.
I think generally i've progressed quite well lately in terms of the back end and the body, now my focus is going to be on the front end - roof, sides (which are a complete shambles here, also need some good teal etc) throat (which could be a fraction long on this one) and toppings.
I put a progressive rib on this one too for the first time, though you'd hardly notice it.
The magenta hackles i dyed myself, and quite happy with how they turned out too.
