These two models sort of remind me of the ships from the Flash Gordon series and movie. Do you think that was what Estes was going for?

They do have that old "sci-fi serial" look don't they?

Here are mine.

I've been scheming about this build for a while now.In fact I am also starting to give thought to an upscale Dragonship based around an old Estes Broadsword cone I have left over.Thanks to a combo of an E-15-4,a stock shock cord,a stiff breeze and an outdoor concrete basketball court that Broadsword is now just an Estes Bro.....!These are also two which I plan to keep upscaling.One day maybe I'll be able to pull off a duel N powered drag race between the two.:D :cool:
