Thanks for the comments, everyone. I've worked on it a bit and added new pictures to the first post. I have no plans to revise it further as of now, but I may change my mind soon enough.

Maybe you could use some bar
pieces to capture the skeletal sort of look?
I considered carefully which ones I could use and tried a few things out, but at this scale it's kind of hard to integrate that kind of detail. The "stern" was just too narrow. But thank you for the suggestion, it was at least worth a try.

Having been there numerous times and it being a symbol of my hometown as well, I love it.
The shaping is very challenging, but I think you pulled it off really well. Great work, JimB!
Glad to see a fellow Wisconsinite's approval.

You might add some plates (or tiles, but I don't think that's possible) underneath the white 1xX plates, to make a fuller wing on top.. But it's already very good!
I did try that, but it doesn't work too well with the clips holding the tiles. Also I wanted a more skeletal look, but thank you for the suggestion anyway, it really helps to see things from others' perspectives.
