A number of my scratch build aircraft were built with a balloon busting mission in mind. Somehow I never got around to building the balloon... until now.
Like most of my builds, I aim for "good enough for the table" rather than perfection or complete accuracy. For the balloon, I decided to forgo a lot of detail in the rigging and the paint job. The potential exists for me to go back to add more to either of these at some point (but I rather suspect that I won't!)
For a quick overview of the build, check out the album: http://www.wingsofwar.org/forums/album.php?albumid=1640
If you want the full detail of how it was all done, just let me know. I'd be happy to give you a step-by-step!
