F-86 Egg Plane

December 14, 2020 · in Aviation · · 6 · 2.3K

I just finished this little beauty for my youngest grandson, Colton, who will be two next month. It is the Hasegawa kit but I took some "liberty" by putting his name on it. Vallejo metallics over Tamiya gloss black primer. Kit decals and the custom made "LT Colton". I decided to paint the yellow and black ID stripes instead of using the kit decals. I built the Hase F-22 Egg Plane for his older brother two years now they each have one of their own. Hope you like it.

  1. Cool little build up, Tom. Hope the boys like it! These egg planes are a unique little package. Ive got their P-51 ready for paint, pretty fun, well crafted mini-kits.

  2. Nice job Tom! I have been blessed with my first Grandchild. She's 9 months old. Next summer I am hoping to start building her a Gee Bee pedal car. I bought the plans back in the late 90's hoping for this time to come.

  3. Your "egg" F-86 looks great, Tom!
    I am sure you had lots of fun putting it together and your grandchild will love it.
    I've never built one, but I am tempted to.
    My local hobby shop has two last Hasegawa pieces: a Blue Angels F-18 and a Hughes 300 helo...

  4. Cute looking F-86! My first grand child is due in January.

  5. These Egg planes are soo cute, you would almost become ignorant of the absence of aerodynamic properties...
