Hughes 300 And Mikoyan-15

Hasegawa Hobby Kits' Eggplane Series model kits are so darn cute!  They're short, squat, rounded and...well--egg shaped!  How's that for a perfect description?

Both model boxes boast cover illustrations by Takashi Fujisawa and are a snap to assemble.  Easy-to follow instructions make assembling both models a real treat and before you know each are painted, decaled and assembled with nary a fuss!

Parts detach easily from their part tree, decals apply with ease and assembling them only takes a short time.  But, be careful, you don't want to mess up these cool models by trying to put them together too fast!

The Hughes 300 helicopter looks like a ladybug on steroids when completed.  But even though it is diminutive it still carries all the details of a real Hughes 300.

Likewise for the Mikoyan-15 jet.  It's twin jet engines, sleek fuselage and landing gear may be small and stunted but the model is 'egg'cellant!  It's time to 'egg'cellerate!
