This is a 1/245th scale model kit of a Graf Zeppelin airship made by Hawk. When completed, the model will measure approximately 98.7cm (38 1/2") long. The kit is brand new and still factory sealed. As this is a kit aimed at a more skillful modeller, it is recommended that it is for ages 12 and over. Even then, some supervision and assistance may be required for younger modellers.
"On its first flight to the United States, The Graf Zeppelin LZ-127 was commanded by Dr. Hugo Eckener, and Captain Ernst A. Lehmann as first officer. The Graf left Germany on October 11th 1928 with 20 passengers, a crew of 40 and several tons of mail. In spite of many delays the ship averaged 56.6 miles (91.08 km) per hour. Upon arrival at Lakehurst, the craft still had sufficient fuel to remain aloft for an additional 55 hours. The flight lasted 111 1/2 hours and had covered 6,000 miles (9,655.8 km).
The return trip to Euorpe gave the Graf Zeppelin a new record for airships. The flight back was made in the record shattering time of 71 hours and 12 minutes.
During 1932 the Graf made 58 cruises, flew 112,336 miles (180,782.32 km), carried 1,218 passengers, 6,052 pounds (2,745.18 kg) of mail, and 4,456 pounds (2,021.24kg) of freight. Perhaps these are not very impressive by today's standards, however, the significance becomes plain when we consider that the Graf set these records many years ago.
The Graf Zeppelin made its last flight in 1938 to South America. The Graf Ze;;elin was retired and dismantled in 1939. The retirement of the Graf brought the end of the era of great airships."
