Eggs For Soldiers

Eggs For Soldiers is a fundraising campaign in support of Help for Heroes.  A “small change to your weekly shop can help make a big difference to our armed forces”.  By switching your shopping list staple to their eggs 15p from each pack sold will be contributed to Help for Heroes.

In support of the campaign East London based sculptors Jack Munro and Charlotte Austen have put together an almighty effort to produce a sculpture out of Eggs for Soldiers egg boxes of one of the best, if not the best, designed planes ever.  A Mark I Spitfire.


The full scale sculpture was unveiled at the Imperial War Museum in Duxford.  Measuring 12m in length, with a wingspan of 13m, and comprised of 6500 egg boxes!



Constructed from a CNC-routed and laser cut timber frame to match the plane’s iconic elliptical wing design, this was then skinned in fabric before being adorned with the egg boxes.



An extremely creative way to raise awareness for a very worthwhile  charity!
