Albatross from Master of the World movie

I love the Albatross airship from the 1961 film 'Master of the World' starring Vincent Price. It's a low budget movie based on the Jules Verne novels 'Master of the World' and 'Robur the Conqueror'.
The thoughtful screenplay is by Richard Matheson. and it is one of the films that used to get regular airings on TV in the Christmas Holidays along with Irwin Allen's 'The Lost World', and 'Journey to the Center of the Earth' and the Peter Cushing Dalek movies among others.
Anyway, the Albatross is a super cool ship. And is a really nice miniature, although the effects overall are a bit crude.
Does anyone know if a garage kit od the ship exists? Or possibly a cardboard or paper kit? (in the film the Albatross is made from compressed paper!)
Has anyone scratch-built their own model? I have been thinking about making one for a while.

Hi
I'm afraid I can't answer your questions but I agree its a great ship that would be impressive if someone built one. Good luck
