Metal Earth Bird of Prey

The third model in my Metal Earth collection will be the Klingon Bird of Prey.

Looks a little bit more complex then the Dragonfly.

no paul won't like them mark, there's no :superlglue: to be used...
lovely bird, would be nice to see one of these kits painted properly instead of the plain sheet metal look...
