Hunter-Killer Zeppelin - 1918 Paris (approx 700th scale)

Built between February & May 2020

 

I had a vision of something Steampunkesque involving the destruction of a significant landmark. So when I saw the Heller 650th scale Eiffel Tower and the 720th scale Mark 1 Zeppelin kits the idea made itself. There is a slight problem of mismatched scale between the kits which made the Zeppelin really under-scaled for what I wanted. So the solution (late in the build) was to add a third larger Zeppelin hull to the two I had originally. The model also benefitted from a lot of photetch and injection moulded items originally manufactured for 700th scale ship models.

 

The base is made from MDF covered with a layer of carvable hobby foam. I then carved the landscape using Google Earth images of the contemporary Parisian area overlayed with a World War One cratered-battlefield.

 

Photos of the original kits are here.
