Need a Monster aerostat?

Here is a 1/144 scale model of the German WW1 naval Zeppelin LZ4, by Airalex

With this beast you can cross the channel at will and bomb with impunity!

At $300 each I'm guessing you wont be flying squadrons of them on the table but she does have wonderful detail as is hand-made. I love the paint scheme too, I might have to use that on my next big Dig.

Too cool...and an easy modification to 15mm...)

Wow!! I would hate to see what the turning circle of this beast is!

I bet she glides like a brick and turns like an elephant- still, she is a beaut!

True Don, but think of how many figs you can get for $300! :-)

Here is a much cheaper one in 1/245 scale. Its still over 3 feet long!

***The price is a bit off putting!
But damn this thing looks sweet...)

MUCH BETTER price! And still doable as a 15mm work! I use Ship Size and Scale ideas from the Major General's Page...have to make things fit on the table....)
