With an Egg/Caricature GB going on at another forum I thought I'd have another attempt at that style modelling :S .
Plan TBD :lol: .
Requirements/needs = 1 x egg shape.




Done.
Can't find any rules saying you can't use something the size of a goose egg :silly:
Next up decide what the heck to turn it into - ahhhhh decisions (run and hide) :lol: .
Was thinking maybe something from the nautical zone - not many egg ships available :huh: .
To be continued..............................

With the 'All at Sea' GB coming up I've been looking at American Civil War Ironclads recently - and there is one egg-boat among them - the CSS Manassas.

:lol: Powder - if you want/need plans for any of the ACW Ironclads just give me a yell ;) . USS Keokuk would also be a qualifier, as would CSS David.
My personal favourites from that era are USS Cairo and USS Chocktaw.
This might help with the selection:




Just turned down a more conventional egg and assessing the possibilities :)

Well a quick purve on the interweb and I believe I have a victim lined-up:

Kamov Ka-26 or Ka-226

Both have an eggish appearance anyway, so time to get my crayons out a do a few doodles to help imagineer the final look (I even have 1/72nd kits of each :) ).
Proper progress to be inflicted very soon :lol:

Just been out in the shed laying some more eggs (must sort out my 'worm' problem :lol: ):



Found another quite suitable eggify subject NASA's HL-10 (most of the caricature work has already been done) :



however the Ka-26 is looking quite 'interesting' once caricaturised :) (not shown here, don't want to spoil the surprise):



Time for a nap and ponder the choices :silly:

Decided I might need a few eggs of the plastic variety so am just in the process of making the master ready to bake some plastic later today :) "



A quick sand and a splash of primer in the morning and it should be acceptable :whistle:

After many hours of slaving over a hot stove :lol: I've got some useful bits that can be used :) :



Roger's handy tip for the day - when glueing this type of enclosed item ensure you drill a small hole to allow for air pressure changes (temperature fluctuations). I learn't this the hard way many years ago :( .

I guess if you dabble with eggs you have to expect the odd one to hatch occasionally. :)
Progress is looking good.

PS I like the effort you go to with your photos - the artistic arrangements are worthy of a cooking book.

Cheers guys.
No real effort with the photo's, just plonk the bits down so I can see the bits that need to be seen then click :) . Still trying to figure out the best setting now all my lighting is LED :blink: .
Like an idiot I had a little look around for other potential victims for egging - now have a short-list of 15 'must-do's' :ohmy: , but one in particular is stuck in my mind:




For me it's just screaming out to be egged :P (darn I've been trying to avoid using egg puns).
Might just end up with 4 projects laying around on the bench :whistle:

Kamov Ka-26 egg

It appears my ailment has struck again (multiple projects started and still starting more :ohmy: :lol: ). I guess that's the only downside of scratch building where pretty much anything is possible you end up like a kid in a candy shop with the brain working triple the speed of the builds already started :unsure: .

Staying with my love of the quirky, just couldn't resist attempting this beauty :S :




Have made a new egg master (bantam egg shape) and slaved over the stove again ;) .
Just making a surround shape and ready to cut a gaping hole at the front :blink: .
Proper progress will be documented soon.
Cheers for putting up with my erratic bouncing between projects :) .

Backing up the talk from the previous post :lol: with 'action' shots:




Looks a bit Minion like at the moment, just about to slap some builders bog around very soon.
Feel free to add CC/hints/suggestions :)
