Question
Graf Zeppelin 1/200 (any news from Lindberg?)

Does anyone know if Lindberg has discontinued their 1/187 (or 1/200..?) Graf Zeppelin? Or if anyone knows if Lindberg exists ..? I have asked them the same question and there was no answer.

Does enyone know if it is a fine model? I had never in my hands any Lindberg kits.

Last and most important:
are there any other 1/200 scale Graf Zeppelins in kit or hull only.


Thank you !

The Lindberg kits are not on the same level as say, Tamiya, but they are decently laid out with fair instructions, and decent detail.

Lindberg appears to be releasing some kits right now, whether it is old stock or a new production run, I couldn't begin to guess.

Don't hold your breath, not likely to EVER be released. Lindberg is roundly criticized for their poor "scale" quality, but their models can be fun to R/C.

Of all the scheduled new releases LH proposed, that's the one that I hope gets canned. I'm watching someone try to do improve the looks of their I-53 into a real IJN submarine & it ain't going to be easy.
