The Robot Spy Delivery Craft
This was a separate kit from Anubis Productions:
Dave Barkovitz (Anubis Productions) wrote in to confirm
that the above robot spy delivery craft was actually an Anubis Productions item.
Dave also informed us that he had done an update to the robot spy kit's base, and
sent in an image of the revised kit, as well as an image of the updated kit box.

Monsters in Motion
The SST Jet (a.k.a. "The Dragonfly")
This one was originally sold by a company called "Monsters in Motion". Unfortunately,
as of 2009, the SST no longer appears on the "Monsters in Motion" website, so it
looks like this is not available anymore; bummer! They are on the 'net at
if you want to keep checking or send them a note.
UPDATE! June 2011
Dave Barkovitz (from Anubis Productions) wrote in to say:
The SST that Monsters in Motion used to sell were also Anubis Kits, originally sculpted
by Randy Cooper. He is still selling them at the moment: email@example.com

Models from Mark Klingerman
The picture on the left is the Amphibious Monster from "The Sea Haunt". The pictures
on the right are the "Robot Spy" Spider model from the episode of the same name.
Note the scale of the model as compared to Hadji from "The Shape of Things" collection.
Both models were built by Mark Klingerman, who provided the images and the information
(Click on the images to see larger versions.)
I asked Mark about the construction of the Robot Spy model after having seen it
up for auction on eBay, and he replied:
"The eye is a 2 1/2 inch plastic ball. The legs are 1/4 inch steel rods bent to
the right shape. The antenna are made out of wire and 2 buttons. It measures 15
inches tall and 21 inches across."
And, after a bit more conversation,
Mark told me the tale of the two models
you see here.
SST Jet (aka Dragonfly)
The Quest SST
jet (aka the "Dragonfly" in "The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest"; in the Classic
JQ episodes, it did not have a specific name, but was used quite a bit.) This is
the plane seen in the opening credits in Classic JQ.

More SST models
Here is another scratch-built
SST model; originally seen on the auction site eBay, and accompanied by the following
text: This huge, scratch built model has been professionally assembled and painted
to scale and comes with a weighted removable stand. This model measures 22" long
X 12" tall X 9" wide (with stand included.) It is made of PVC, acrylic plastic,
polyester resin, fiberglass, aluminum and steel. Nothing about this model is flimsy.
The front wing stabilizers and induction scoop are aluminum while the wings and
rear stabilizer are made of acrylic. The nose cone is made of solid steel and the
entire model has been fiberglass filled. The model has been painted with white and
black enamel. The base is chromed steel circle that is covered with a shadow image
of the plane in textured black plastic. An aluminum support arm easily holds the
plane in place for show. The base also has a felt pad to protect any surface that
it rests on.
