    March 5, 2008: Hindenburg begins

    Hi guys! :wave:

    Just wanted to try and have some fun by joining the Free Model #3 contest.

    Anyway, my model is the LZ-129 Hindenburg, that's available for free here in www.amod.estranky.cz The download of the free model can be found under the OBLIBENE ODKAZY section located on the lower left of the web site's page.

    The model is in 3 Downloads.
    - Instructions

    - Airship Formers

    - Airship Skin

    Was a able to print them with the help of the nearest Internet cafe. 58 pages all in all including parts and instructions.

    I'll be starting on the airframes of the Hindenburg tonight by cutting the parts and pasting them on cardboard.

    I'll try to do this one properly sign1

    wow, impressive...

    every time a new thread pops up for this competition, I think of about 20 more models I'd like to make as an entry... if I'm lucky I'll have found one before it's over :D

    looking forward to seeing more of this one, it's not something you see modeled every day, nice choice.
