German Aircraft Carrier Graf Zeppelin

I plan to make the model in 1:700 scale, so there might not be as much detail as I'd like. That being said, I hope to include miniature aircraft to make up for the lack of detail. So far, the hull and flight deck have been drawn up; currently working on the superstructure.

Way cool! The thought of what might have been if the real one of these was actually finished is a terrifying prospect. Have spoken to many veterans who describe stuka attacks and the thpught of these being carrier bourne....... WWII may have had a different outcome. Anywho, brought (and managed to totally muckup!) a jsc model of this, (No copier so wasn't happy) another chance to have a go is exciting. Looks good so far Brian

For the scale of the ship, the planes should be more than adequate
