Fluttershy's Bird Choir by renegadecow Fluttershy's Bird Choir by renegadecow
Fluttershy is always rehearsing with her bird choir. In fact, that's the very thing she was shown doing being introduced for the first time. When you're frequently asked to perform on special occasions and possess skills that land you a royal audience there's little reason not to keep your choir in harmony. This third piece in my pony automaton series proved to be the most difficult to design and make by far as I wanted to match Fluttershy's grandiose reputation. Other than the typical moving parts, her bird choir actually sings! The characters, box (stand) and fence are carved out of Philippine mahogany as are the cams, bellows and slide whistle. The gear train and lever arms are made of Narra hardwood. Fluttershy stands at 6"; with the entire display it measures 10 1/4" high, 8 1/2" long, and 4" wide. The entire piece took me a staggering 182 hours to complete.

Watch and hear them sing here: [link]

Wait. WAIT. Birdies DOES whistle 'My little pony, my little pony,what the friendship is meant for"? :omg:
I've sent it to my friend and he was glad what there were music box makers:3 "I wonder is master will make some music boxes, like with 'Winter wrap up..." And I suddenly realized what their singing is really familiar!
