    Super sausage!

    I never managed to acquire an AIM one - I think mine might be Red Eagle.
    Thanks for the detailed notes on how to 'garnish' it!

    Thanks guys. This is my neutral one that I can also use with the French. I have another German one I am adjusting the basket ropes so it looks like it hangs a bit closer to normal. Pics in a few days...

    Thanks Guys.

    The figures I got off of ebay. A while back Zoe mentioned them and I got some. They are railroad figures. I don't remember the exact scale but they are right about what we need. Some are in the works to man my Gothas and Capronis.

    Looking pretty awesome!

    The figures, are they N scale or HO scale?

  42. #192

    Default

    I would guess N scale, Dan, much smaller.

    Thanks Andrea. I'm sure your new balloons will fly off the store shelves when they are available again.

    A Belgian/French Caquot.
    This one went through the war getting made I had to strip the paint and start over after experimenting with an oil wash.
    Shapeways Reduced Aircraft Factory balloon that I got off eBay
    The basket is scratch-built from the corner of a playing card box and florist wire. Parachutes from Tamiya smooth epoxy putty. It's tied to the crossbar with thread so it jiggles when the table is bumped
    Figures are cheap 1:100 HO scale.
