    A dirigible!
    Being from the aerospace sector, this was fairley easy. I'm impressed its lit up inside, local ones used for TV coverage of outside events (gridiron etc), use a rubberized cloth, and so therefore are opaque, i.e. externally lit.

    I'm reminded of the "Top Gear" caravan/travel trailer, which was hot air supported.

    Truly magnificent. Was the radar in the background scale too, so the 'harbor master' could view ship movements remotely?

    Note; We have similar problems with scale model aircraft, speed and inertia being the two biggies.

    I seem to remember some similar scale warships with a person inside. Was this pre-radio control?

    It looked good all lit up from the inside. I hope to get a flight on it one day.

    Famous superyacht. Something of an engineering nightmare to pull off the skylights with the mast going up through. All kinds of info on her out there. I seem to recall they made a movie of the build.
