Republic of Australia Egg Force.

 Another completed Egg plane for the RAEF.
F-16 from a 4D Models kit which is as far as I can tell is a straight copy of the Hasegawa item.
Photographed not at Dadswell Bridge but at Kich Entop Field, Mount Martha.  ;)

Thanks mate.
They make a nice break from more complicated stuff.  I may hang them from the xmas tree.

Love 'em all!  :wub:

Is there a matching F-111 to go with them too?
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

Not sure if Hasegawa do a 'vark.  They do a Starfighter and an F35 though.
I do have a J15 in the stash which is going to be signed up.

 :rolleyes:

AFV club do the Egg Starfighter rather than Hasegawa.  Hasegawa do an F22 rather than an F35 as I thought.  Meng do a J20 Mighty Dragon as well as an He 177 and a Tu 2.

As far as RW RAAF types go Hasegawa can provide me with a P-38, P-40, P-51, F-86 and an F/A-18.

Has the Australian Egg Force considered the Saab 29 Tunnan? It looks as though it's approaching egg proportions as an initial (and surprisingly effective) design.

Does anyone do an Egg Tunan kit though, or does an OOB kit count already?   ;D

I've seen those Egg plane kits and thought about doing some cute Area 88 themed ones... you are making that idea very hard to resist.  Geez...

Thanks!
