NOTES: Build the body, and build out to the tip of each wing. Close at the very end of the wings. Be sure to balance the feet before gluing to the body. It is also suggested to add some cotton to the wings, for extra effect. And don't forget to to trim off the excess white around the streamers.
Also note that the wings have a little bit of extra definition compared to the build.

I'd say getting a bag of cotton balls and shaping them, then gluing to the wings would give it a more 'natural' look.
