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!
