Here’s my third model I’ve built. I own this model because it was the largest aircraft ever built. In its second year of service it was destroyed by a fire while landing at Lakehurst Naval Air Station in New Jersey on May 6, 1937. A total of 36 people of 97 perished in the “accident”, which was widely reported by film, photographic, and radio media (check out two high-qualtiy movies on Internet Archive).
Revell made this model kit in 1995. I didn’t find it on their page, so it’s no more manufactured. Instead of the 1:720 scale replica there is a Mini-Kit. But I’ve still found the 1:720 scale replica online at a swiss shop called Hobby-Shop Hässig. The model kit is very detailled and has fragile thin parts, which can break very easily, if you’re not handle them well. All in all it’s a nice kit, for me a litlle small comparing to the R-100 Airship from Maquette, which was a 1:500. A kit review can be found at Modeling Madness.
