With a zeppelin you can put motors *anywhere* because they've got this frame around them. It should be easy to build a zeppelin frame from balsa wood, then attach some model-airplane motors to it. Plus, with the rigid structure you could probably even attach things like cameras to them.
You also get to hang ropes off of them for mooring, just like in real life! Oh, and I can even get a cool zep captain hat, just like 'ol Ferdinand himself!
