In a topsy-turvy world of walls, bad hairpieces and armed nutters, it is refreshing to note that some migrants have been welcomed.

The brewery warehouse has a couple of very welcome visitors, they bring good luck to the building (and its owner) and are icons of the locality. The storks are long-distance migrants, wintering in Africa, returning to the same location and partner.



Don't bother trying to find a source, they are 3D printed one-off examples.

Very cool! I am fortunate that in my scale (1:35) there are many available birds and other critters and in O and even HO scale, birds are available and scale isn't a problem since the live ones vary in "scale" themselves.

Hi Tim H, wow nice job, question is the 3/D printing done on paper, if so I am looking at printing pedestal fencing, could I get the same affect.
I am modelling Sydney Central station building and the building has a lot of pedestal fencing, I am trying to get a cheap way that will look good from a distance, if  I go actual plastic 3/D printing will cost a lot, the fencing is only 12mm's high, and 10 pedestal in a row.
