Airships & Aircraft

Ships of the Air & naval aircraft. Viewed alongside same scale battleships, the enormous size of 20th Century airships is immediately apparent! Navis' metal air ship models are 1:1250, matching the waterline ships, and are supplied in a Perspex display case that has a nicely finished wooden base with the model supported on two pylons. Finish is good in authentic colours and markings. The WW1 era aircraft are of course tiny and aren't in display cases.
A 1/1250 scale set of waterslide transfers for the British airships in service or built from 1918 to the end of airship construction following the crash of the R101. The sheet has sufficient airship insignia to complete up to 2 airships in RNAS/RAFmilitary service plus at least one other with a civilian registration.

A 1/1250 scale resin model of German Navy Zeppelin airship, L11 (factory number LZ41). L11 was a P-class Zeppelin airship and was one of the very few to carry a disruptive camouflage scheme in WW1. This camouflage scheme was applied later in the war when she was in use as a training ship in the Baltic. One of the longest lived wartime airships, she was eventually scrapped when worn out.

A 1/1250 scale cast resin model of HM Airship, R80. R80 and her intended sister, R81, were the last two rigid airships designed for the RNAS in WW1. They were designed by Barnes Wallis to be built by Vickers in their old airship hangar in Barrow and were shorter than other RNAS rigid airships based on German designs. The R80 was more streamlined than German practice and proved to be the best airship of the era but fell victim to Government cuts in the defence budget. R81 was never ordered.

This is a 1/1250 scale Zeppelin P-class airship, LZ47, from 1916. This airship was built for the German Army and was unusual in that it carried a camouflage pattern with green and brown splodges on the natural fabric coloured background. The pattern resulted inthe nickname "The spotted cow" being given to this particular airship.

A 1/1250 scale model of L 11, a Zeppelin P-class airship in service with the German navy in 1916/17.

L11 was the longest serving airship in the German navy during WW1. She entered service in 1915 and took part in bombing raids on Britain and scouting for the High Seas Fleet. Towards the end of 1916, she was withdrawn from North Sea operations to train new airship crews and she was painted in this experimental camouflge scheme, which she wore until scrapping in September 1917.

A 1/1250 scale model of the British airship R100 produced by Coastlines Models from a 3-D printed Classic Airships model.

This model differs from the Navis Neptun model in that it incorporates the changes made to the airship after testing to prepare her for the return transatlantic voyages. The most noticeable difference is that the pointed fabric-covered tail cone was replaced with a rounded aluminium one, see photograph. This model is not provided with a stand since the model is light enough (9g) to stand on its landing pads without support and it is painted in aluminium metallic paint with bespoke decals.

A 1/1250 scale acrylic plastic Classic Airships kit of theNorth Sea-class non-rigid airship N.S.11. This class entered service in 1917 & 18 with the RNAS. The North Sea-class had an enclosed crew area and were designed for extended anti-submarine patrols over the North Sea. Endurance proved to be 2-3 days and they were successful in the anti-submarine role. N.S.11 & N.S.12 escorted the warships across the North Sea for the surrender of the High Seas Fleet after the armistice in 1918.

This 3-D printed model has been assembled and painted by Coastlines.

Neptun's fine model of the Zeppelin that was named after Princess Viktoria Luise the Prussian princess who was the seventh child and only daughter of Kaiser Wilhelm the German emperor. This was a civilian aircraft and gave day trips to passengers. In particular, there are several photos and movies of the airship flying over the battleships including HMS King George V at Kiel Week in 1914. After WW1 broke out this airship was used to train crew for military airship duties.
The airship was 148 metres long and its volume was 18700 cunic metres. Power was provided by 3 Maybach motors of 170PS.
A successful airship that nonetheless only lasted until 1916.
During WW1 airships of this type were used by the army and similar ones (a couple of mm different on the model) were used by the navy. (Navy airship L3 is the nearest match for size & contol surfaces design)

A 1/1250 scale model of the R33 class, the longest serving rigid airships built in Britain.
R33 was built by Vickers and R34 by Beardmores for the RNAS.
R34 was the first to complete just before the 1918 armistice and made the first east to west aerial crossing of the North Atlantic in 1919 just weeks after Alcock & Brown had made their west to east flight. The R34 succesfully returned to the UK a few days later. Before the transatlantic crossings, R34 had made one armed patrol over the Baltic coast of Germany to encourage the German government to sign the peace treaty to end WW1 but was not engaged in action.
R33 was largely used for testing and training.
This model is of the R34 at the time of the transatlantic crossing.
