The D9 Dragonfly Hoverdrone is locked on target

For the past six months or so, Taylor Walker has been working on a series of LEGO models in his own “Space Defense Force” theme. His latest creation is this excellent hoverdrone, which looks like a bulked up dragonfly (thus the name, I guess), complete with big buggy eyes and a long tail.

In case you missed them, his earlier Space Defense Force creations are well worth a look in Taylor’s Flickr album. His S27 Buzzard starfighter clearly shares a design aesthetic with the Dragonfly, but has a unique design of its own, with swept-forward wings and larger blocks of dark gray.
