Egg GB

What with this ludicrously awesome site appearing in the 'whiffs you have found' forum, and what with it having a tutorial on scratch building your own egg planes, why not have an egg GB?
You can build anything you like, as long as it's an eggy-version. You can obviously build the Hasegawa egg plane kits, or you can scratch/bash something of your own. And, since a little research has shown that plastic eggs tend to come in 12 packs, you can build twelve different entries!

And obviously indulge in a lot of egg puns.
There are no good kits, bad kits or grail kits, just kitbash fodder.

Can we make yolks about it?
Would that be all white?

We did the Egg Plane SCRAMBLE!!! GB eggstravaganza a couple of years back, Easter being the perfect time to hold it.  Same time again?

I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Why not, we could have it as an annual event, every easter. Possibly for a short duration so as to not get in the way too much.

About three minutes should be right.........  ;) ;D :lol:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

My eggs arrived, so I think I might build a practice egg plane before easter...
I was thinking of doing something sort of unthinkable - an egg plane of a whiff profile - the Puddingskiya PUD-3!
