Alessandro Pianon bird. One question
« on: June 21, 2015, 08:55:06 PM »
Hi again!

I'm wondering one thing about the various birds that were made according to the design by Alessandro Pianon.

The bottom part of the birds sometimes is plain (no hole), sometimes as a hole (from the production process, likely where they blew the air inside, right?).

I'm wondering about this: why do some of them have this hole, and some others do not (apparently from the pics found on the Internet).


Thanks a lot


Without hole (it seems):

Hi antoinep,

I have removed the [img] tags from the links in your post such that they now show normal URLs.

Perhaps the images you linked to would not be a problem as the largest size was the height, not the width. But some viewers have reported problems when large images are included - as opposed to the thumbnails automatically created for the Image Attach system of the Board.

So two smaller pics:

One of them shows the bird with a hole beneath, the other shows the same model but without hole.
I'm trying to understand the reason for the difference? (I understand they needed to blow air to make the bird though)

Crossing my fingers someone will know, Thanks a lot

Are the legs attached on top of the hole on some examples? Perhaps according to where the holes end up as each bird is hand made.
