Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Space pirates? Smugglers?

Sweet! I don't have the funds to do a lot in that regard, but power to anyone who can pull it off! It is very much an early torpedo boat destroyer style hull, and my shading from that long ago stinks. And a bit of scale-o-rama! LOL!

A Q-type Zeppelin, the larger of the two Takom kits, is only twenty feet longer than a Kaiser-class battleship and
its 61' diameter is 34' less than the beam of the battleship.

The wartime zepps were much smaller than the Graf Zeppelin and the Hindenburg.
