Coastlines CL-AS05 P-class Zeppelin airship L12 (LZ43), 1915 1/1250
A 1/1250 scale fully assembled and painted metal model of a P-class Zeppelin airship, L12. The German Navy airship L12 seems never to have been camouflaged and was in service in natural coloured fabric until shot down by AA fire in 1915.
The German Navy specified that the upper part of the envelope should be painted light grey but this did not happen on those airships built during the first half of WW1. The panel on the top of the ship was an open-weave fabric to allow leaking hydrogen gas to escape.
