When Is An Egg-Plane Pilot Happiest? (Hasegawa 'Egg' CF-18 Conversion)
Posted by gregbale on Monday, April 08, 2019 4:37 PM

This is my first completion in Gamera's 'Silly Egg GB' currently in progress. I decided to give the old Hasegawa 'Egg' Hornet a Canadian flavor with a few tweaks and additions. Decals were surplus from an old Italeri 1/72 'RF-18A' kit.

And the answer to the question "When Is An Egg-Plane Pilot Happiest?"

Why...when he's on the flight-line...getting ready to scramble.

It's a little-known emergency combat technique. Preferred launch method is to use a really big rubber-band....  Big Smile

Thanks, guys!

Now THAT would make an interesting diorama!  Your egg-plane sitting on a carrier deck with a giant rubber band attached to the front...  Propeller
