The Mosquito is finished!!

Well, these pics stink, but I'm kinda excited about being done (I think), and I wanted to post some images of her. The "A" on her dogtag is the last initial of the family who commissioned me to make her. Why do I know it's a female? 'Cause female mosquitos are the ones that bite!
The basketball is for scale (no, she doesn't play :) ).

Well, here's my first post on the big mosquito that I've been commissioned to make! All copper tubing, and I'm about 2 thirds done. Gotta finish the one wing and add some legs, but I'm gettin' there!

Invention

24 gauge dark annealed wire. Maybe 6 inches tall.
For Illustration Friday, this weeks word is "Invention". Don't know what this machine is supposed to do, but I bet it would be interesting.

Funny, scrolling through some of the other entries for this week, it seems boxes with funnels leading into 'em is a common idea for "invention". As you can see, it was what I thought of too. Just kind of interesting, like we all watched the same cartoons when we were young.
