This is 1:100 scale model of LZ129 "Hindenburg" zeppelin.

The model is 245 cm long and 40 cm wide at its widest diameter. Details included: - Steering gondola - 2 fully detailed passenger decks - An Opel "Olympia" cabriolet (1st car ever to be flown over the Atlantic ocean) - 4 motor gondolas - 4 rear fins (including steerable flaps) And many more...

See my Flickr account for more photos. Or youtube for a short overview video. Or read the background article in the Hispabrick magazine: Hispabrick magazine No 15


View from the side, one of the two port motor gondolas are visible. To get an idea of the scale of this airship: On the lower beam that connects the front port motor gondola to the hull a little blue microfigure is visible. That figure is on scale with the rest of the model...


The upper passenger deck: 17 double rooms On the port side the dining area On the starboard side the lounge area (including the special-made lightweight piano) On both sides the large panorama windows 2 stairs to the lower deck with the toilet, bathroom, gamble & smoke room, bar and kitchen

A view from the inside looking to the front. The strengthening links between the spokes and the circlesegments are good visible. They add a suprising amount of rigidity to the structure.
