Default Cassowary model from July 2009

Since the brand companies have until now not cassowary in the program and this bird has always been a wish model from me, I've a model self-designed. The wattles are somewhat far apart , but otherwise I think it is well done.
But see for yourself, some pictures here:












And size comparison with ostrich by Schleich:

I hope you liked it. What do you say to that?

I can't see any problem to his/her wattle at all. I think it is simply a wonderful model.

One of my most favourite birds is Cassowary . I was admiring it for hours together in the Taronga zoo in Sydney in my last visit . Here is the pic. of cassowary I took . What a colorful bird na ?

Yurumi , the wattle color you had given is astonishing - the attractive blue and red . Also the ears and eyes are typical .
