Over the years I have completely run out of superlatives to describe your work Scott.  Of course I guess they aren't really needed.  Your art speaks for itself.

Wow....stunning (again)!!!!!
My jaw had just settled back in from your last bunch....and now it's slack again.....
No disrespect but a Bazzer's Eye's Rev flitting around the Emu would be quite a sight.....

Thanks guys for all the kind remarks.
The Emu is a collaboration with custom 3D printed fittings from Lindsey Johnson and framing input from Ron Gibian.
 It has 55 spars, 2 spreaders and the spine. Some of the spars lead off of other spars making assembly 20 minutes instead of 30 min



I went through several prototype framing ideas before settling on this set up.

Good grief, it's hard to decide which is the more spectacular.  The front or the back. Huh
