This is the first in a series of posts about things I've made people for Christmas this year. The only problem with making things for friends and family is you can't really blog about them until after they have received them!
This excellent junk model seagull is one of Rob Ives designs. I love his designs for their simplicity and for the fact they are so fun.
It actually took me a couple of weeks to put together as I hurt my finger and then caught a cold. However under normal circumstances I think I could have done it in an evening if the glue dried quickly.
This one went to my Dad, even though he does live at the seaside and probably has too many seagulls! I thought he would appreciate the engineering involved.
