that is a nice model you are looking forward to model. I suggest you should try with the traditional plane modeling technique and then extend the edges to get the shape of the feathers. You should model piece by piece rather then going for one single object.

I tried that tho I was not at all happy with what I came out with

this is my model to date (http://i188.photobucket.com/albums/z44/LordMaddog/SacredFlight-1.png?t=1225656387)

as you can see I am no noob to modeling but this one piece I cant get it to look 3d like I want it ends up all 2dish or blob looking when it needs to be fluff

any one ells have ideals on how to model this?

Do you have other perspectives on that image or is it just the one drawing? If it's just the one drawing I would take the time to sketch out how you see it inyour head. If you have it in front of you it will be easier to model.
