Tomorrow will be the 80th Anniversary of the Hindenburg Crash at NAS Lakehurst, in NJ.

Here are some really poor pictures of the two zeppelins I have built. I had better pics of them on the old forum, but they are gone now...

Here is the USS Macon...






And the Graf Zeppelin.....

Those look great. Are these balso and doped tissue? Wish the people at the Museum at Lakehurst were not so uncooperative. I tried to get passes but they seemed to be annoyed answering questions.

I should have said, the Macon is an AMT model and the Graf Zeppelin in Lindburg. They are both plastic.

Yes, the news made a big deal about granting limited access to the site and museum for the weekend. Like you say, they definitely discourage visitors with all their reservation/background check BS.
