Graf Zeppelin is the only aircraft carrier launched in Germany history. Its construction began on December 28, 1936 in Kiel. At the behest of Adolf Hitler, work was stopped in 1943 despite the progress of construction at the level of over 90%. This had to do with the withdrawal of all large units after the Battle of the Barents Sea. The aircraft carrier was towed to Szczecin, where useful equipment was dismantled. Its construction was never completed. At the beginning of 1945, fearing the progress of the Red Army, the aircraft carrier was partially sunk and shelled by artillery. In the summer of 1945, the raised and provisionally sealed ship was incorporated into the USSR Navy. However, it was not qualified for renovation. In 1947, she served as a target ship and was sunk in the Baltic Sea. In 2006, the shipwreck was located 55 km north of Władysławowo. It rests at a depth of 87 m.
From a set of COBI building blocks you will build a model of the legendary German aircraft carrier Graf Zeppelin. The model was designed in a standard scale of 1:300. A record-breaking set consisting of as many as 3136 bricks will provide many hours of exciting construction. This is a new release with improvements in the form of a new color of tiles on board in brown. The design of the chimney has also changed. The high-quality prints used with precision reproduce the painting of the deck and details of the ship from the period of World War II. Prints do not wear off even with intensive use. For the first time, the COBI model designed a working elevator for aircraft placed directly on board. Using a knob located in the invisible lower part of the hull, you can raise and lower the elevator with the aircraft placed on it. The model is accompanied by 8 brick micro on-board aircraft, which are made in new color versions. The set also includes a special transparent block, which, after attaching it to the primer, can imitate the aircraft taking off.
The aircraft carrier Graf Zeppelin can be displayed on the included display stand, which contains a plate with the name and scale of the
model. This advanced and exclusive collector's set is sure to satisfy fans of the navy, history and modeling for large and small.
