How To Train Your Dragon Kite

via Imgur

Peter Lynn Kite Factory in Ashburton, New Zealand built this fantastic 59-foot (18-m) 3D show kite in the shape of Toothless, the Night Fury dragon from How To Train Your Dragon 2 movie.

Donna-Marie Lever of ONE News reports that the kite was made by hand in just two months. "Hollywood sent them a toy. The task: to transform him into an 18-meter monster in the sky ... There's no computer, no flash technology - just a steady hand and a scientific mind to pull off the contract of a lifetime. Each kite is worth $5 grand."
