Product Description
PLEASE NOTE: The Spring 2017 price changes that Shapeways introduced for Frosted Detail printed items increased the price of this model enormously. Rather than remove it altogether, I have placed it here in the LEGACY section of my shop. My new version  with the envelope MJF printed and at a much lower price is available in kit form HERE. The kit includes beautiful waterslide decals giving you the option to model either SSZ39 or SSZ59

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.

The model is in three parts plus the display stand. Use a simple dress makers pin cut to a length of 12mm to attach the gondola to the envelope.

The S.S. Zero is also in the shop in 1/700th scale.

Sixty-six S.S. Zeros were delivered...
