Here goes nothing.
I trawled through several potential ideas which I have wanted to build, and I think an ornithopter is the one I've put off for too long. This is going to support my sci-fi scenery (an amalgam of Judge Dredd/Rogue Stars/Terminator Genisys/Necromunda/Frostgrave) (yes, Frostgrave!), and will be in 28mm. I found a few images online which I am basing my general idea on. Corrupting its name, I'll be calling it 'the VIXO'*.
*No relation to the gaming thingy!

There's no end of ornthopter pics, the Dune ones being most abundant - but this one caught my eye in particular.
It won't be identical, but I'll be taking some ideas from this:

I am also considering an ornithopter, though of different design.  I did come across another couple of Mark Molnar pictures that might be of help to you:

Thank you! Very much appreciated - nice spice harvester, by the way, too.
Best of luck with your ornithopter.  Cheesy Curious to see what you come up with.

Excellent - given my fondness for Dune, I've always loved ornithopters, so I'll be interested to see what you (both) come up with

I'm scouring the place to find bits in my various storage boxes, in particular in relation to the wings. I think I've come up with half a dozen different ideas on how to attach the wings - I'm guessing that by the time I get round to it I'll have enough for a book. Hypno
