Description: German Airship "Hindenberg" all aluminum unfinished model. Handcrafted of aluminum metal, possibly one-of-a-kind model and probably made in the 1940s. The fuselage is made of multiple formed sheets approximately 3" wide extending the length of the airship's body and riveted directly to the internal metal frame. Four incomplete engine housings without cowls or engines are attached to the lower fuselage by formed, streamlined aluminum supports. Four large stabilizers extend to the rear of the airship. A hand painted black swastika within a white circle on a rectangular red field is painted on vertical stabilizers. Paint appears old, of the period and is undamaged. Fuselage has an opening on the underside where a gondola would have been added. The nose section of this model is constructed of an aluminum bullet-shaped piece. Model presents with an overall length, nose tip to rudders of approximately six feet, with a circumference of 39" at its widest point. A unique model of this legendary airship.
