Product Description

The S.S. Zero was the most successful development of the British S.S., "Submarine Scout" (sometimes called "Sea 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 SS Zero was surprisingly sophisticated and gave good service during 1917 and 18.  As well as battling German submarines they served as convoy escorts and released large numbers of 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.

The model is in two parts to allow for easy cleaning before assembly.  There is a 1mm diameter hole in base of the hull for a mounting rod.
