Coastlines CL-CAS04a Zeppelin airship, LZ47 in 1916 1/1250
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.
The model is a Classic Airships 3-D printed acrylic model, finished and painted by Coastlines. It is the same type of airship as the German navy L11 which carried a different camouflage pattern. The darker upper central area represents the porous fabric fitted here to allow leaking hydrogen to escape.
