Things are going slow with my Albatros egg plane so I'm starting on another one.

 


I SAW a completely different aircraft in my FW190 egg plane so I brought out the SAW.
I added a left over nose from a Roden He111C and smoothed things up with Magic Sculp.

The tail was cut off and a piece of plastic tube inserted between the parts.

The space between them was filled with plastic strips.

A new fin from a 1/72 kit replaced the FW190 fin. I am using the the wings from the same kit, but they need to be deformed a bit to look right.

A piece was cut from the wing tips but I think the engines look a little thin for an egg.

Is this going to be a 262 egg?

Yes that is what I hope to end up with.

I just hope it doesn't go to sleep like my little SAAB tunnan.

I have butchered an old Matchbox kit but as usual the build stalls for some reason.

You need to carry on with your Tunnan - it looks great so far.

Looking forward to seeing your completed Swallow egg.

These are truly fascinating. The Tunnan really looks the part :D!

 

Too good for the shelf of doom. The Swallow looks very promising.

 

Great creative fun :thumbsup2: 

Best regards

I found these engines in the scrap boxes and think they will work for the rounder look I want. I sure hope they do not belong to any kit I haven't built yet.

I am adding the front and rear of the Me262 engines, One problem is that I'm running out of Magic Sculp and I need to blend in those the parts.

I put the wings on temporary to se how it would look. I'm not entirely happy with the look of the engine

But on the other hand I don't think the original engines look right on it either. Well I have already destroyed one original engine so I have convert the second one to. Boring to do it twice.

 

I tried to edit this but pictures won''t show but clicking on them bring them up.

Me 262?

 

At this point, I'd have said Westland Wyvern :)

Well I managed to finish the Tunnan: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235026835-mini-saab-tunnan/

The Matchbox kit was shortened and widened with a Lancaster radom for a canopy.

The wing was butchered at both ends. After that all needed was to put the pieces together and add large amounts of putty.
