V-1 Flying Egg?

Hello once again,

Taking a short break from armor this next project is kind of a fun one. Earlier this year the guys at my modeling club decided to do a group build and the subject was "egg planes". This is a fun gender of caricature airplanes shaped like eggs. Here is a link to the clubs group build.

I came up with an idea for the group build but was tied up with other project to enter it on time. Now I am getting around to finishing my egg plane, or egg rocket. I chose the V-1 for my subject and scratch built it out of an Easter egg (Just to be really authentic) and a few bits of plastic tubing. I don't have any step by step photos but here it is as it stands today.



I will be giving it a simple paint job so stay tuned for the conclusion of this eggstaordinary modeling tale.

Hello again,

It is now time for the conclusion of this model. Painted the lower half using a mixture of Tamiya light blue and white. The top parts I used Vallejo dark green. I applied a couple of decals and gave it an oils filter to break up the otherwise plain surfaces. I apologize for the crappy lighting.



Until next time.

dave

I wonder why they call them eggs, and not lemons?
