**********************************
It seems someone has built a rigid flying model of Shutte's R-100, well under the normally assumed size of models built with traditional wooden frames.

It is safe to assume the framework is constructed of a plastic or composite material and is utilizing hollow rather than solid members, and most likely features a simplified internal structure rather than a true-to-scale one similar to that used on Jack Clemen's flying rigid model of USS Macon, or Nigel Well's R101.    It is also probable that the model, due to its size, is using a more buoyant gas such as hydrogen.  (Beware when placing this around very explosive ESC type motor-speed controls found in all R/C models featuring electric motors which require speed variations!)


Now that you know you do not need a massive space in excess of 20 feet in length, happy building.  I am always on the lookout for more projects, such as this delightful but very sadly unfinished example from Joe Van Cleave.  joevancleave.blogspot.com/2012…

I hope I'm not making a nuisance of myself, spamming the Blimp Hangar with my freshly painted balloons?  :XD: I can't help myself...

At least everyone gets to enjoy some pretty party balloons from my spam, right? :dummy:

Maybe the people should make custom airships that can seat two people the pilot and co pilot/passenger
