Some company needs to come out with a Stuka version just for Bish, or a short fat Spit with squared off wings.  Big SmileBow Down

Just delivered today. 

Not really an egg beater, but more of an egg chopper.  Need to figure out what paint to use then I'll be ready.

I thought of doing one up as T.C.'s chopper from Magnum P.I.

 

Higgins did refer to it as 'the easter egg' in one episode...

Both are good ideas.  I do like the brown, orange, and yellow scheme.  Gamera, I'll work under the assumption that you have dibs.

Food for thought.

Would not surprise if Meng have a Stuka lined up at some point. I keep looking.

But wouldn't that just be a normal Spitfire Whistling

Tiger Models has this:

Found this one also, though not sure if it's a real kit or just art:

And of course you might be able to find dear old Flt.Lft Rif Raf:

Then there's this...which, so far AFIK is only 'concept' art:

It strikes me you might be able to lash up a Stuka by artful crossing of, say, an 'egg' Warhawk's nose and an Avenger's canopy...but you'd have to scratch-build the wheel spats.

P-40 or Typhoon nose, P-51B tail, F4U wings (clipped), TBF canopy.  All available in 1/72.  That would be a real kit bash.

Didn't know about the Spits being available, was just kidding since it's Bish's fav.Big SmileWink

So when were you going to put up the official thread?

Building a kit from your stash is like cutting a head off a Hydra, two more take it's place.

Well, I thought I'd wait a little longer but considering how much traffic we've still got going on here and I saw a Cadberry chocolate Easter egg commercial so I guess I might as well go ahead and post it.

Thanks for the kick in the Censored Steve! I can always count on you! Stick out tongue
