how long did it take you to make these?

Hello! I love your tutorial, I'm choosing to do it for my steampunk design, and I was wondering what was the max wing span? And was stringing the wings difficult?

Thanks for the inspiration!  I used your design as a starting point and went to work.  These are the wings I built for my daughter.

Thanks both of you, Yazzzle for the great tutorial, and WoodMystics for sharing the photo, it inspired us as well :D
I'm part of a Steampunk group, and my boyfriend and I did this: www.facebook.com/TallerDeVapor…

We used this fabric named "organza", that we found in a local store, and this one had vertical red strings and horizontal yellow strings, so it looked kind of iridiscent, specially every time I opened them <3 The effect looks better in this photo www.facebook.com/TallerDeVapor…

We want to make another pair of wings, to enhance the mechanism and make them bigger. These were really fun to do, and easier with your tutorial :D And we loved how the people excited every time we opened them xD So thank you! thank you! thank you!!!

We also have a photo "taking off", I'll post it here for you as soon as the photographer finishes the editing.

Kudos!!! :* <3

I want to make Steampunk wings for a convention next year and found yours to be the most doable. However, I have next to no technical skill aside from knowing how to use an Xacto knife without chopping a finger off. In my case, what tools or advice could you recommend to me so I don't end up blowing this project to high heaven? :C

do you have a video of them in action?
