Hindenburg Sneak Preview.

Sneak preview of the Lounge, Promenade, & Reading & Writing room

Here it is! this is the lounge area of my model of the Hindenburg ( the most current version can be found on the Sketchup 3d Warehouse under the title: Hindenburg A deck. by hlostoops.)
  I had been posting photographs of the model on the now crashed website "AirshipModeler" & the move to Zeppelinheim will take some time. In the time after the crash I was able to update the railing (seen here) and the Dining Room tables.
  As well as posting photographs & updates on my models, I hope to include before/after photos of the models, as well as comparison photographs with the actual specimen.
  I hope you will enjoy reading Zeppelinheim as much as I will enjoy writing it.

My blog Zeppelinheim is named after the planned German town of the 1930's designed to house employees of the Zeppelin Co. The blog will encompass my efforts at Sketchup modelling the exteriors and interiors of various ships starting with the iconic D-LZ 129 Hindenburg, writing on the great airships of the 1920's & 30's, planned ships that were never realized, & selections of book titles and photographs from the golden age of Airships.
