Product Description
R36 was a British airship designed during World War I but not completed until well after the signing of the armistice in November 1918. Her first flight was in 1921 by which time her role had been changed from that of a patrol aircraft for the Royal Navy to being an air liner with luxury Pullman style accommodation for 50 passengers. (Compare this with the 24 carried by the much later LZ127 Graf Zeppelin.) In fact she was the first British airship to carry a civil registration: G-FAAF.

Built by Beardmore in Scotland, R36 was a development of the British R33 class and the design was heavily influenced by a study of the German Zeppelin LZ 76 that had been forced to land in England in September 1916.  LZ 96 forced down in France in June 1917, provided yet more input into the design. The R36 along with a second ship the R37 was to be a stretched version of the R33, getting more lift by the addition of a 33 feet (10 m) central section to the hull. Two of her five engines were German Maybach engines, recovered from LZ113 which had not been used in war but transferred to Great Britain in 1920 as part of war reparations. The other three were larger Sunbeam Maori types.

 R36's Control Car was directly attached to the hull and formed the forward section of the elongated passenger compartment. The engines were housed in separate engine cars with the pair containing the Maybach engines  either side of the hull forward of the control car. The second pair were either side of the passenger compartment and the fifth on the centreline in front of the tail surfaces. Unlike previous British airship designs, the fins and horizontal stabilisers were cantilevered structures, with no external bracing. She was 675ft (205.74m)  long.

SCALE: This model of R36 is available in either 1/700th  OR 1/600th scale. Please check your choice in the top right corner of this page.

A 1/1250th scale version of the R36 is available here.
