Artificial Duck Bodys

    George The older I get, the better I was.

    No, the use if the term slanders the ingenuity of an earlier time. You hypothesis about anatomy is almost laughable. I suppose wood ducks could take steroids and beef up their abs and biceps, but they dont. This thread was about a FORM needing to be modified for certain flight positions. Pure bullship. To get your woodie to pitch in, what "soft tissue" did you alter on that form? Same question on taking off, flying, or standing. Bird guys tend to be strange anyway and "bird brain" is a title many have earned, but this ain't rocket science.

    George, I answered the original question and the reason for this post. Later on you came on here lambasting anyone who doesn't think the same as you and I was bored so I gave you plenty of reasons why I don't entirely agree with you. Here is a final question for you and if you choose to answer it or not is entirely up to you but, I'm done. Is the shape of a strutting turkey or grouse the same as a flying or relaxed bird?
    Oh and to quote one of our past presidents "I didn't inhale".

    I tend to agree, the breast of a bird with wings stretched out is going to be flatter than a bird standing relaxed. Look at Shane’s bodies they work great
