In a sense, this model took four years to design. Started some first attempts (e.g. experimenting with doing the various hull parts) way back when I was still using Publisher to design crap, and I was finally able to get the ribbing right just a few weeks ago. Then, of course, my computer decides to crash right before bronycon and what have you, but hey, it's finally done!

Hey, I have the same question as one of the previous posters: how do we connect the white rings with the ribbed surfaces? I'm trying to build it as a chandelier for my room!

You'll need to cut out your own tabs to attach the rings, if that's what you're asking.

WOW!  That's beautiful!  Thanks so much for sharing.  I've always loved dirigibles and wonder why they don't fill our skies, like in so many comic and movie worlds.  I'm also glad the you include the uncensored Nazi flags.  Personally, if I was a German Jew I would be offended by the censorship of the swastika in a historical context.  It's like pretending a very important and painful part of history didn't happen, which is worse than if the swastikas were visible.  That's my opinion in any case.  Thanks again!

Could you please tell me how to connect the white rings with the hull?

Könntest Du mir bitte erklären, wie ich die weißen Ringe mit der Hülle verbinden soll?

Truly incredible papermodel, with really superb quality. And it's also tempting to build since that's second papermodel of it I've seen. (the first one is schreiber-bogen I've bought in Zeppelin museum in Friedrichshaven for 40 bucks.)
Having an opportunity to download this great papermodel for free makes me say: "Many thanks,mister! You have our gratitude" :nod:


P.S.: Maybe I've overlooked the scale, but I wonder what it might be. :hmm:
