In addition to featuring the first military usage of fighter planes, World War I also saw a number of other aerial milestones — including the introduction of weaponized zeppelins, among them Germany's LZ41. Draped in a "multi-colored cow" paint scheme, the aircraft was operated by the Imperial German Navy, taking its initial flight on June 7, 1915, and written off less than two years later, in April of 1917. During its short lifetime it completed 31 recon missions and twelve raids over England, dropping 15,543 kg worth of bombs.
The latest release in our acclaimed Wings of the Great War series, this 1/700 scale resin display model replicates LZ41 complete with its signature paint scheme and metal gondolas! It even comes ready to display on its own presentation stand with an articulating mount! Measures approximately 8¾" long.
