Kingsley Kingfisher
Meet Kingsley the Kingfisher. The third installment of my British Birds series.
About this creation
Kingfishers are probably my favourite looking bird. I could watch these beautiful creatures all day.

I tried something different with this bird and after seeing the excellent wings on Mortalswordsmans brilliant Cyber Angel I thought I would see if they worked with some of my birds. They are not quite as accurate as I would like them to be due to the lack of the right pieces but I'm pretty happy with the way they turned out.

I'd also like to thank my good LEGO friend Steffen Raufor the idea of using minifig flippers for feet. They look pretty good on Kingsley :-)

I built a little slice of river and a twiggy perch for Kingsley so he looked more at home.































Can you spot the fish? Kingsley certainly can :-)





What do you think of him?

Hi De Tomaso, Amazing! You make fantastic birds!!! Especially the wings design of this Kingfisher is magnificent. I think it's time to change your name into "The Kingfisher". Regards.

Quoting LukeClarenceVan The Revanchist Superb bird, and the water technique's ingenious!
Thanks Luke, I didn't intend to divert attention from the bird ;-) I think I may be able to improve on this water design, give it a bit more depth and texture. Glad you like it!

Quoting Sir Balamorgineas Wow! Your birds keep getting better. The proportions and colors look great. The stretched out wings adapt to the rest of the design very well.
Why thank you sir :-)

Quoting Jon B Lovely build, and great use of the various shades of blue on the body. This is a very nice series of builds. Do Emu! THE Emu ;)
What have I got myself in for? Let me finish my British Birds series first, but yes I like the idea of an Emu but there are also lots more I'd like to build, they are so addictive :-)

Quoting Steffen Rau Another great bird in this series! The water is very nice. I'm looking forward to the next post. I'm glad you liked my idea - thank you for the reference. I'm also learning the English names for these birds (it's called "Eisvogel" in German = "ice bird").
Thanks Steffen! Your comments/feedback are always appreciated! I like the German name, it sounds cool! Eisvogel :-)

Quoting Hayden . The wing design is great, The head is perfect, But the Tail could be longer.
Thanks Hayden! The British Kingfisher I based this on actually has short tail feathers, they could maybe do with being 1/2 a stud longer but whats half a stud between friends ;-) Take a look at short tail http://www.fritzhaeg.com/webpic/gl-pic/gl-ae-pic/animals/birds/kingfisher14.jpg
