Flying circa 1878.   SO near the time when Columbia was built THIS was the ideas people had.   Now you might say that to build Columbia's various craft (the Zeppelins with wings etc) they (Fink) could by 1912 have looked into the future, but why then something so ponderous/ungainly and combination of what never existed?   Why not something more advanced like apparently was done with so many other things?   Reason - Zeppelin game model was already made from back before the Quantum BS expanded all the other anachronisms (and running around shooting in a real (small) airplane interior would have been pathetic).


Note that the proportions of this thing are somewhat close to what  Columbia The Floating Balloon City would have needed to be -- with a balloon the size of a large stadium for each city 'block' -- even if it all was mostly lightweight sheet tin, plaster and wood scaffolding (like most real exposition "show cities")  instead of solid brick/stone/pavement...
