The puddlejumpers are small transport ships on Stargate: Atlantis. They go through the stargate, and are shaped like ziti. I thought it wouldn't be too hard to make an egg into one, but it was a pain in the neck. Didn't get good shades of gray out of the dyes, and had to go over the black lines with pen, post-dyeing. However, the actual lines and shapes are (from screenshots) about as close to accurate as I could get them.
Did this one a few years ago.
