Product Description
The S.S. Zero was the most successful development of the British S.S., "Submarine Scout"  Class of WW1 non-rigid airships.  Considering how simple the first of the class were: a wing-less BE2c aircraft  slung beneath a relatively small rubberized fabric envelope, the S S Zero by contrast was surprisingly sophisticated and gave good service during 1917 and 18.  As well as battling German submarines (when they could find them!) they served as convoy escorts and released large numbers of light cruisers and destroyers for other duties.  Bad weather seldom prevented Zeros from performing their work. In the ten and a half month period from 1 January 1918 until the Armistice, there were only nine days when they were unable to undertake their tasks.
A Zero could stay in the air for a long time: 7 hours was its normal flying duration, but flights lasting twelve or even twenty-four hours were not uncommon. The record was held by SSZ 39 which, with full war equipment, flew uninterupted for 50 hours.

The first ever use of the term "blimp" was in relation to Zeros.

Two S.S. zero models are supplied. Each model is in two parts to allow for easy cleaning of the hull. There is a 1mm dia hole in the hull for a display wire.

Each model is just 62.5mm long x 17.2 mm wide x 18.3 mm high

1/1250th, 1/1200th and 1/350th scale versions of the S.S. Zero are available elsewhere in this shop.

The book "Coastal Patrol: Royal Navy Airship Operations During the Great War 1914-1918"  by Brian J Turpin gives a brilliant insight into the lives of the airship men and their machines. The British RNAS successfully countered the U-Boat threat from Germany and the sheer size and efficiency of their fleet of non-rigids has been understated too often by most historians and chroniclers of the war.
