Nice!  But I hope you realize NOW you're going to have to model a football stadium to go with it!

Every layout needs an airship hovering about it - I've used a Revell model of the Hindenburg in a bit of selective compression.

I'm afraid I can't offer a picture of a Goodyear blimp...how about a Bing Graf Zepplin preparing to land and take on a supply of airmail letters and packages waiting in those Marx U.S. Mail cars?

Really cool ,that vintage tin has a sheen to the paint that just evokes age!

I had one of those!  Never did figure out how to create a message though.

Exactly what I was thinking!  I'd like to do it over, and get it right this time.
