Detailed 1/720 scale assembly model kit of the LZ 129 Hindenburg (Deutsches Luftschiff Zeppelin #129; Registration: D-LZ 129), the famed ill-fated German commercial passenger-carrying rigid airship that first flew on March 4, 1936. The Hindenburg was the lead ship of her class of airships, and she ferried passengers across the Atlantic with her spacious and luxurious cabins that remained unmatched in commercial air travel. However, the decision to use hydrogen instead of helium for the lifting gas proved to be the airship Hindenburg's undoing. On its first scheduled round trip between Europe and the United States in the Second season of service, the airship Hindenburg burst into flames during its landing approach and dropped to the ground in just 37 seconds, killing 13 passengers and 22 crew members. This Revell Germany 1/720 scale assembly kit features: Very finely detailed external skin. Separate rudder. Exact reproduction of the control gondola. Display stand. Four finely detailed engine gondolas. Mooring mast. Colorful decals for the "Olympia version" of the LZ129. 37 parts.
