Just thought I would share my newest creation, a Prairie Bird. This is my second since I lost the first. One thing I learned is that the hot pink tissue paper will bleed when doped.

Great looking PB.  The best advice I can give you is either add a DT, or build 3 more.  These things love to go OOS.

For a more serious bit of advice, if you want to avoid dope, try Krylon crystal clear in a rattle can.  The gloss will make the tissue translucent (my favorite look) while the satin will finish a bit more opaque.

That is some great advice. Just dt or build spares.
