Zeppelini

Mussolinis Möchtegern-Zeppelin: With much love and skill, Jon Sarriugarte presents the golden miniature zeppelin, the aircraft will he found in the estate of Mussolini.

Mythos
In high school, I was friends with the great-granddaughter of Rommel the Desert Fox. She told me a story then she had heard about Mussolini’s top secret rigid air ship program in the 1930’s. I did some research and found this incredible airship.
Modeled after the German program with their assistance, Mussolini’s ship was much smaller and covered in a gold finish. A later discovery of the crew outfits was a wonderful surprise and of course they had surpassed the the German’s ten fold.
