ABOUT THE AIRCRAFT:

The Hindenburg, a giant in size and grandeur, first emerged from its shed in Friedrichshafen, Germany on March 4, 1936. After only a few test flights, the Hindenburg was ordered by the Nazi propaganda minister, Dr. Joseph Goebbels, to accompany the Graf Zeppelin over every German city with a population over 100,000 to drop Nazi campaign pamphlets and to blare patriotic music from loudspeakers. The Hindenburg's first real trip was as a symbol of the Nazi regime.

On May 6, 1936, the Hindenburg initiated its first scheduled transatlantic flight from Europe to the United States.

Although passengers had flown on airships for 27 years by the time the Hindenburg was completed, the Hindenburg was destined to have a pronounced effect on passenger flight in lighter-than-air crafts when the Hindenburg exploded on May 6, 1937.

 

This is a model kit that requires paints and glue to complete (available separately)
