Dragonfly from Jonny Quest
« on: Wed Oct, 04, 2017, 01:01:PM »
This is my Moebius Models "Dragonfly", the supersonic suborbital aircraft from one of my favorite shows as a kid, the 1964 action-adventure cartoon, "Jonny Quest"...

The fuselage is 10 inches long. Add 2 inches for the spike/antenna and the overall length is 12 inches. I replaced the plastic kit antenna with one made from carbon steel music wire so it would never bend or break off.
