The model is named "Sunbird", and the error is mine. There may be a "Starbird", or "Star Bird" somewhere in the patch, but it will take some digging and poking. At some point between the original concept and the final post of the file, I changed the name and forgot about it. I apparently so very forgot about it that I forgot I had named it in the file itself...

Addendum: I could also have forgotten the name should have been Starbird, and just made yet another goof above...

Such is life. I tried not to grow old, argued seriously against it, but my body and mind had other ideas, and they never listened to me anyway.
