This is the biggest thing I've ever made — a dragon with a 3 metre wing span, designed to be suspended in a very large room.

It currently lives in Baltimore USA, in the brand new Ripleys Believe It Or Not! museum. The reason I haven't shared it was because I was waiting for some GOOD photos of it suspended to come through. The best I have of it hanging is the shot in the top right hand corner of this montage. The other photos were taken at home when it was lying on it's back, I don't have a support beam strong enough to hold its weight, so I didn't suspend it.
