Puffin on Cliff
About this creation
Meet Penelope The Puffin. The first in a series of British Birds I have created.

I love Birds and the Puffin is one of my favourites, they have so much character and are incredibly cute.

I have tried to recreate these birds with as much detail as posible with the Lego bricks at my disposal.

So far I have built seven, but there are more I have in mind to build. I will post one a day for the next week as I think they are all deserved of their own page.

So here we have Penelope sat on her cosy corner of a cliff preparing for a days fishing.





Notice I used carrots for her legs, I think they were just perfect for the job, let's hope there are no rabbits around.











A picture of the cliff on it's own. This is the first bit of Lego rock work I have attempted.



Anyway I hope you like her and I look forward to showing you the rest.

Great shaping, very realistic, too. And cool parts usage on the legs. Be sure that there are no LEGO rabbits around ;-)) Great job! :-))

Excellent MOC, and as mentioned by others, great carrot usage! Look forward to seeing more. Bananas as talons on something maybe? ;p

Quoting Steffen Rau Wow! This is brilliant! Some NPU here, love the carrots. I can't believe it can stand on its own feet, must be tricky to balance this. (the feet are a bit small, do you have some of those flippers - http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=2599 ?)
Thanks Steffan! Why didn't I think of that piece! I have some but only in red and lime green. Tried the red on there and they look good enough but I would prefer orange. Even though this piece is bigger than the piece I used she won't stand up no matter what I try, maybe she prefers having small feet lol

Sweet little build. Great idea to use the carrots. The cliff captures the way they look in the wild, up on some remote cliff over the sea. Nice work!

Quoting LukeClarenceVan The Revanchist Awesome! The puffin's excellent, but I feel the rocks could use some work. They're nice and jagged, but they're vertical without any slope. Personally, I think a slope would improve this, but maybe it's just me. In any case, great job!
Thanks Luke! The last time I saw a cliff it was verticle lol It was just a quick build to add to the Puffin as I felt she needed a little scene.

Quoting Henrik Hoexbroe A surprising build! The bird is really good, but I think that the feet are too small. Gemius with the carrot-legs though!
Thanks Henrik! I agree the feet are too small, but this was the only orange thing I had to connect to the end of the carrots.

Well done! The body is fantastic; it's instantly recognizable, but the leg area seem odd. Just my opinion. Yummy Puffin cereal! -LB Jr.

YEEEEES!!!! It's a puffin, man, a PUFFIN! XD Just amazing, properly Puffin-tastic! This is great, the cliff is nice, the grass is good, and the puffin... you get the idea. I can't wait for the rest of these.
