Diecast, beautifully detailed replica in 1/350 scale. Stand included. In 1940, the 76th Congress passed Public Law 635 providing for a 10,000 plane program which included a provision for 48 non-rigid airships. However, based on a rise in U-boat activity during WWII, the number of blimps in flight would increase to 133 in total. 35,600 operational flights were made in the Atlantic and 20,300 in the Pacific from 1942-1945. Navy Blimp SP-12 participated in the sinking of the last German U-boat used in WWII. After WWII, the Navy reduced the size of its blimp fleet, eventually ceasing usage of the airships in the 1960's.
