RE: Dragons on Animal Planet March 20

WOW... 1986... I actually have "Flight of Dragons" taped on Beta. I completely 
forgot about it until you mentioned it... Gorbash, Smrgol, Arak, Carolinus... 
and the evil wizard Ommadon, voiced by James Earl Jones... I don't know how 
many times I've watched it. I even saw it at the theater.

By the way, I haven't followed all of this post, so I don't know if anyone has 
mentioned this yet... In last month's Amazing Figure Modeler magazine, 
prehistoric models and their modelers were the big feature. Fantastic issue. 
Anyway, do any of you remember the movie "Dragon Slayer"? It came out back in 
1981. It is THE all-time greatest Dragon movie... EVER. In honor of the most 
anatomically "accurate" dragon to grace the silver screen, Timeslip Creations 
has made a near exact resin model of her, Vermithrax, with a wing span that's 3 
feet wide! She's amazing. That "Reign of Fire" movie had dragons that were 
nearly identicle copies. She's very easy to build as well... I'm almost 
finished :-)
