C&S Baby Blimp US Navy - 24 Inches Long
Wood Model Kit, Box Condition: Fair
Rare 1940s model of a WWII US blimp. Features standard stick-and-tissue construction, printed balsa bulkheads, pre-cut keel and stringer stock, thick balsa sheet for the four fins, blocks for the nose, engine and gondola and large, covering tissue, full size plans which include building instructions. Never started. The parts have been inventoried 100% complete and everything is still wrapped in the factory packing tissue. NOTE: there is bug damage to the plans, but it is light and does not affect construction. I have seen an add for this model in very old Model Airplane News magazines. C&S made quite a line of ridged airships including the Los Angeles (in two lengths), Graf Zeppelin (in two sizes), Hindenburg and perhaps others. The C&S boxes were thin cardboard and are almost always beat up and missing sections; this one is no exception.
