Mechanical Swan by Shasa Bolton.

I was thrilled to discover a great flapping mechanism in a work by Keith Newstead and simply had to try it in my next project. Here it is...

Black Swan with steel and wood.
The body is made from many M12 washers welded together,
The wings are laser cut with a Tasmanian Oak veneer.
Driven by a large brass worm drive.
