Here's a little section of anybody who manages to find a really odd ball model that doesn't fit into any of the other catergories.

Metal Earth Dragonfly

After seeing Marks excellent castle, I had a look around and found three I liked.

These are made by a company called Metal Earth, they have a large range of model http://metalearthmodel.com but I got mine from Amazon.

First one is the Dragonfly.

Comes on one sheet.

The part that I like are the wings. There so delicate.

Well that's it.

1.5hrs and I have a Dragonfly, it's a nice simple little model which sits in your hand. I'll get some better photos when there's better day light.

Really easy to build ;)

I'll do the next one tomorrow.

The Star Trek model is better in the SciFi section. Be warned, these kits are adictive !!!

The dragonfly looks brilliant.
Cheers

Just an idea :think: might get another one and give it a coat of paint.

But I was thinking for painting it without primer so the metal shows.
