Bis heute hat mich dieses Erlebnis nicht mehr losgelassen.
Dass etwas so Riesiges sich langsam in der Luft fortbewegen oder stehen
kann ohne runterzufallen!
Leider musste ich feststellen, dass es neben den Luftschiffen, die ich bereits besaß, nur wenige weitere gab. So entschloss ich mich selber Modellbaubögen zu entwerfen. Bisher sind das Aluminiumluftschiff von David Schwarz und Carl Berg, der erste Zeppelin LZ 1 und das erste Passagierluftschiff nach dem 1. Weltkrieg, die LZ 120 Bodensee, erschienen.
Until today this experience did not leave my mind. I couldn’t understand that something with that enormous size was able to move so slowly in the air and also “stand” in the air without falling down! The dream of owning such an airship was planted in my mind. I can’t remember exactly if it first were the airships of the company Wickueler Pilsener or the zeppelin of the company Schreiber which I wanted to have. Anyway I was just thinking about model construction sheets. From printed large paper sheets I could re-build the airships and hang them up under my ceiling. Later all the texts which were attached to the construction sheets and the many books which I read about the topic of airships and zeppelines made their history revive in me again.
Unfortunately I had to realize that there were only a few more airships, apart from them which I owned already. That’s why I decided to sketch my own model construction sheets. So far the aluminum airship of David Schwarz and Carl Berg, the first zeppelin LZ 1 and the first passenger airship after World war 1 (LZ 120 Bodensee) are the only ones that appeared.
