Re: Your P's and Q's and a fistfull of R, S, T's and U's!
Hello Doug, you will find my 1:1250 & 1200 aircraft HERE
in my shop at Shapeways.
Just to explain: those models are all in "Fine Detail" plastic (U.V. cured resin) and the prices I think, are pretty good. As the size of the model increases however, prices at Shapeways increase exponentially and a large rigid airship for example becomes beyond the pocket of very many people. So on my own website I am trying to give affordable alternatives for the larger single piece printed models.
Additionally I will soon be offering multi-material kits exclusively on my website, something that I cannot easily do in my Shapeways shop.
Bytheway, if you cannot find a 1:1200 version of one of my models, drop me a line and I will put that right.
All the best
If Robert is impressed with your models, then I too would be interested in your 1/1200 Catalinas, though I could not find any flying boats on your web site.
You make terrific airships and flying boats; have you considered making the various marks of Sunderlands and Catalinas, the two most widely used Allied flying boats of WW II?
These are the first 18 models in my "CLASSIC AIRSHIPS 1250" line up . They represent the production of all of the Zeppelin factories from April 1915 until mid August 1917 starting with the first million cubic feet ship, the Army's LZ38 P-Type and ending with the Navy's L54, 1.97 cubic feet, L48 Class, U-Type.
The 18 models account for 60 airships built and I have listed them on my website in a searchable table that identifies exactly what variant each individual airship was. All you have to do is enter a particular I.D. number and you will be taken straight there. Alternatively of course , you can just look through the different Classes or Types to see what is included.
At the bottom of the table you will find a link to my waterslide DECAL order page - sheets CA001 and CA002 include markings in 1/1250 scale for every Naval Zeppelin operated during the War - You can mix decals and models in your shopping cart, I have to ask you to bear with me though because I have not been able to automate the shipping/postage charges. Models and Decals are despatched separately so please click on one of the delivery buttons (once per order) for each.
The table below shows all of the German Navy Zeppelin Types employed and it illustrates that I still have M and O types from the start of the War and V, W and X Types from the end to add to the model range to make it complete. Plus of course, there were various rebuilds of 'ships that changed their outlines significantly enough to require a new model, even in 1:1250 scale. I will be adding the Vs, Ws and Xs within a week or so; the rest will be completed within the next few months so please watch this space and I will let you know when they are available!
Happy modelling everyone.
Some examples of models from the first 18...
