HELP WANTED:



I am trying to find images of those iconic, golden-age-of-pulp-fiction, retro-tech, future-that-never-was kind of vehicles. Flash Gordon's rocket ship, little sky scooters. Think shiny things with longitudinal strakes and more fins than is properly appropriate.... You know what I mean.


Long story short, I can't figure out how to trigger any sort of a decent google search that'll trawl up a decent gallery of images (n.b.: I take it as a given that somewhere in the world is a science fiction nerd who has assembled an image gallery and published it to the Web).

Little help here? Anybody got linkage for me?

Thanks in advance,
Blight

Google "Ming the Merciless" and it will pull up some stuff...
