- An Opel "Olympia" cabriolet (1st car ever to be flown over the Atlantic ocean)
- 4 motor gondolas

And many more...

Or read the background article in the Hispabrick magazine:
Hispabrick magazine No 15

View from the side, one of the two port motor gondolas are visible. To get an idea of the scale of this airship: On the lower beam that connects the front port motor gondola to the hull a little blue microfigure is visible. That figure is on scale with the rest of the model...

The upper passenger deck:
17 double rooms
On the port side the dining area
On the starboard side the lounge area (including the special-made lightweight piano)
On both sides the large panorama windows
2 stairs to the lower deck with the toilet, bathroom, gamble & smoke room, bar and kitchen

A storage compartment with the aforementioned cabriolet and some crates and barrels
A toolshop with a mechanic inside

A view from the inside looking to the front. The strengthening links between the spokes and the circlesegments are good visible. They add a suprising amount of rigidity to the structure.
