Oh man, these are just eggs-ellent... (via the Yahoo Space Modelers forum):
Welcome to the universe of Eggstreme Machines. This site is dedicated to some of the funniest and cutest models ever: Caricatures of existing machines, based on the simple form and size of a hen's egg.
Modeler Miltiades Polykrates scratch built these shuttle models and dioramas:

Fascinatingly weird... and clever!

The X-15 is hilarious.

I have a few of these in my collection, they're always fun to build. The collection includes Columbia 'in space', Challenger on its gear, Endeavour with boosters, Enterprise with scratchbuilt tailcone and Buran. Just need to build an egg SCA to finish things off.
