    USS Akron

    I built a gasbag. When this first appeared in 1976 I put so many eye tracks on it on the hobby shop shelves that I thought I'd wear it out but somehow it never managed to come home with me. Now many years later it finally did. You can do either Akron or Macon; there are several detail differences between the two ships. Many of the small details are pretty clunky; AMT couldn't get the tiny struts to look small enough, so when it's built out of the box it looks very much like a toy. I spent several months plotting out how I'd do the control surface balance tabs before coming up with the brilliant idea of drilling right through the fins and using wires pushed through. AMT did this model in the ever-popular scale of 1/520, thus ensuring that it could never fit into any collection except beside the Hindenburg. Hindenburg is actually slightly larger, but the perspective makes it look smaller. And lastly, up on top of the bookshelf where they live.
