    Hi everyone! I just stumbled across this model on Papermau's site :
    The Thrust Polar Borer from the 70s film The Last Dinosaur. Anyone else here
    old enough to remember that TV classic starring Richard Boone? ;) PolarBorer_model_01.jpg http://papermau.blogspot.com/2014/02/polar-thrust-borer-rocket-paper-model.html

    this monster, with a brain the size of a pea, just destroyed one of the greatest minds of the 20th century!


    ... or something to that effect :)

    good find!

    Ah, the 70s....I should mention the picture isn't my build but an example from the author's website. It is indeed a very clean, straight build.

    yes I remember the show, I was going to make the dinosaur but got caught up in moving and was there when this guy made this great model!!! I remember his first post on it was vectoring the cone and explaining it. he did a great job and we were all satisfied, its cut out and in a samwich box on my work table waiting to be glued!! lol.. I just looked at in on saturday wondered if I should sit down and finish it, naw, I will in a week, lol and got to work on my grissom.
    still a great tv show, a great memory of him making this great model.
