Toto is hatched

At this point Toto looks pretty much like all the other just-hatched 21's, but if you look closely enough its uniqueness will become apparent. Just keep staring at it. If you find yourself looking away, STOP and return your gaze to Toto. Look carefully.

If more than an hour passes, it's okay to look away.

The only thing I can think of is it's Toto, and it's yours!!!!! That in itself makes it very special, doesn't it?

Looks like it could possibly have a large front window, covering bath and bed areas.

The front looks like other Escape 21's, such as the one in the ETI website photos. I do see the markings for the cutout for the optional bathroom window, but I don't know if that makes it unique.

I think I'm missing something - it certainly wouldn't be the first time!

How to avoid staring for an hour

Okay, seriously, nothing to see here. I just wanted to share our eggcitement and couldn't think of anything to write. I don't think there's anything unique to see unless you consider that this particular set of molecules in this trailer shell IS unique. But not in a visible way. Not yet. Not to me, anyway.

We hadn't realized our build was underway already, so the pix arriving yesterday was a thrill. What fun that the Escape crew does this for us all.

What is really unique is how ETI has those big molds and uses air pressure to release the egg. Loren

Well their product may be unique in some ways, but the mold size and using air to break the part free certainly aren't unique. I've laid up parts 3 times that size and been using air since the 60's.

The most unusual (and desirable) part of ETI's fiberglass shell handling is that they join the two shell parts while they are still in the mould, ensuring alignment of the parts. I think the door frame is 'glassed in before the body is taken out of the mould, as well. Of course, all Escapes get that treatment

Back to Friday Photos!
