the second pair of models were the navy airships LZ 62 "L 30", the prototype of the Zeppelin r-type, and LZ 114 "L 72", also in the scale 1/66.6667.
The LZ 62 "L 30" survived the war, was dismanteled at Seddin in 1918 and delivered in pieces to Belgium where some parts, like a wing engine car and the radio station, are on display in a museum.
A rare view of LZ 62 from above, showing the pattern on the back as well as the gun paltform and the rear gun post behind the upper fin.
The LZ 114 was the last Zeppelin airship built during the war, but it never entered service. After the war the LZ 114 had to be delivered to France for war reparations where it was named "Dixmude" and made many sucessful flights under the command of the young captain du Plessis until it disappeared of the Mediterranean in a thunderstorm.
