Draggin' Fly
Winged Out, No Doubt!

  • Original year: 1971
  • Company: Monogram
  • Scale: 1/24
  • Designer: Tom Daniel

It's a's a plane...NO! It's supertrike! Tom Daniel must have had his eye up in the sky when he dreamed up this far-out machine. This winged rammer sucks its power from a big "8" mounted behind the pilot's pit. The mean mill sports a big air intake on top and eight headers busting out if its sides.

It's fed by two drop fuel tanks under the wings. Blowing off the competition is a breeze with the chromed, 4-blade propeller. And the prop rotates when the trike is pushed! Forward of the front wings are raked-out, moveable forks, mounted with a square-beam headlight. The chrome reverse rear wheels are covered with super fat racing slicks.

The dude jockeying this scoot is decked out in some bad airman threads. He leans easy in the hi-rise seat. As he grips the strung-out bars with one hand, he gives the "thumbs-up" sign with the other...meaning A.O.K. For sure, this model really is.

Dave's comments:

The only hotrod bike/trike allowed in the Rally, this combination plane/trike/rod is just too wild not to gain admission. It even comes with its own rubber band to drive the propeller! Tom Daniel's mind must have "flown the coop" on this one.
