Sorry for the poor photos. The model is bigger than my portable photo studio.

Really awesome to see a Zep being built in this scale.
Cheers Rob.

Thanks. The build so far was a piece of cake. The hull/envelope is in front and rear halves that are split vertically and the tail fins are separate pieces, but all fits together well. The challenge is going to be attaching the tiny gondolas to the long and thin pieces of photoetch supports that then attach to the hull. The tail fins have some fairly complex rigging too.
