Record Breaker and Cold War Warrior

4th March 2017 marked the 60th anniversary of the start of US Navy airship "Snowbird"'s World Record breaking endurance flight - 11 days and 14 minutes
travelling the North Atlantic without refueling
or touching down. My model of the ZPG-2 type of Class-N blimp
is now in my CLASSIC AIRSHIPS Shapeways Shop
. You can depict a ZPG-2W either "in flight" or with undercarriage down and moored to the mobile mooring mast and tractor provided in the kit. 1/700th and 1/600th versions
are also in the shop.
Here is the kit... (note that the US Navy markings and national insignia below the nose are engraved into the model.)
...and a couple of photos of the prototypes! First the beautiful "Nan Ship" in flight:
And here is a ZPG-2N submarine hunter front and ZPG-2W sub-hunter and AEW behind:
