I just cannot resist any further!

I've had a most outlandish idea for a Chibi-Maru vignette for some time. I've got the model, IJN CV Akagi, I've got the poofy blue insulation for the wave base. I'm working on Egg-Dolphins to complete the "Make a Model, make a Joke" silliness, of which I am SO fond.

I had some Minions Tic-tacs, not doing much on my desk.

Then I took a few beads from my Dear Heart's endless stores.

The Egg-Dolphins are a family. I got swept away and did the WWII Kriegsmarine's 9th U-boat Flotilla's "Laughing Swordfish" insignia, in living 3D. Just to fill space in the Egg-Dolphin mold.

Watch & See!! It will tickle yer funnybone!

O-bee K-bee! :facepalm
During a gmail chat with Mike one week-end, I was laughing about what eggish things a Guy could do with a Chibi-Maru Ship Model. Since then, I've been kicking around the Egg-Dolphin idea inside my model-addled imagination for a long time. :hmmm
I've made a lot of dinky odd-ball models since 2016, When TLAR Models started. They mostly come from plans, detailed drawings, or measurements and pictures I took myself (Shrimp Boat set). I wasn't gonna make a Shark for the 1/350 Orca. If occurred to me that if I could make The Boat, I could womp up a scale Shark the proper length.
Well, Hell, If I can womp up a scale Great White (after a few :drinks ) What's stopping you from making the Egg-Dolphins come to life? Grow a Pair and get it done! Sooo...........

I popped the seal on the Minion Banana Tic-Tacs my Sister gave me, started laughing, turned up the music, and sallied forth!!

Note: Tic-Tacs do not react well to drill bits. They fracture into flakes & pieces. Grind them with a bitty Dremel grinding bit. :bangs head

The fins, flippers and tails are all little cast-of pieces of liquid plastic from my ship model castings.
I just pick out a chunk the right size, give it a basic shape, C/A glue the piece to the Tic-Tac, accelerate and sand it to a shape That Looks About Right.
EVERY experienced Modeler knows to sand any resin part with water to keep from having dust enter your body.
When you wet-sand a tic-tac, they get slimy first, then sticky, then yer fangers turn yeller!! :smack
DUH!!

Gentle grinding with a Dremel cut-off disc on the glass Bead will groove it enough to attach the dorsal fin & bitty flippers for the Baby (hatchling?!) Egg-Dolphin. I plan to use Archer's eye decals on the finished Cetacean Family.

Feel absolutely free to mimic my efforts if you must make Egg-Phins for YOUR own Chibi-Maru ships. OR!!!
TLAR will have this set for sale in a few weeks. Just go ahead and use Tic-Tacs mints for their intended porpoise. :drool
HOWZATT Mike? Better?

My Scrambled mind could do NO less. I always do my best to keep the Sunny Side Up. I've never claimed to be less than EGG-centric! I do love me a good pun. A boring over-weight, boring, english-teacher-waitress told me once that puns are the lowest form of humor. I say "The Yolks on YOU unhappy educated no-tip-gettin' sourpuss!"
:pp :stinker

Thanks Men, for looking in!!
