Product Description

The genesis of the R Type was in March 1915 when the German Admiralty requested designs for the largest vessels that could be accommodated in the standard hangars then in existence at their North Sea bases.  The resulting six engined ship marked the greatest advance  in airship construction made throughout the war. Navy L30, the first of the class (Zeppelin build number LZ62), made her first flight on 28th May 1916 and with various modifications the basic design was repeated right through to the end of the conflict. Furthermore it played an indispensable role in the airship programmes of other countries: L33 made a forced landing in England in 1916 and the first successful British rigid airships, R33 and R34 (famous for the first two-way crossing of the Atlantic in July 1919) were copies of her design. The later L49 served as the basis for the construction of the U.S. Navy's first rigid, ZR1 the USS "Shenandoah".

On learning about L30, British Intelligence nicknamed the R Types the "Super Zeppelins".

There is a 1.9mm diameter hole in the bottom of the hull for a support stand.


Please Note:
The Spring 2017 price changes that Shapeways made for Frosted Detail (FD) printed items increased the price of this model enormously. Rather than remove it altogether I have placed it in the LEGACY section of my shop. Additionally I have produced another version which has only slightly less detail than this one and is in Strong and Flexible (S & F) plastic. It has a different surface finish but the price is very significantly lower.  Click HERE to see the S&F version of this model.
