Balloon Fiesta!
About this creation
It's the world renowned Bristol Balloon Fiesta this weekend and I have had this balloon hanging around for about six months waiting for this day.

It's a little Red with white polka-dots hot air balloon.

I grew up with a fascination for balloons and have been very lucky to have flown in one twice, once over Bristol and once over the French Alps. It is something I feel everybody should experience, yes even if you're scared of heights ;-)

The balloons a flying over my apartment as I type :-)





I even included the "burner" and my Sig fig is very happy to be out flying in the electric blue sky. Give him a wave as he passes overhead ;-)





I hope you like it!

Now I can finally take it apart and use the pieces for something else :)

This is really well done! I love how you built the round shape of the balloon with the exposed studs. Also, I like the fenders creating the round opening of the balloon, clever choice there. Awesome!

Very nice, and the burner design is really tidy. I did have to do a double-take to see if there was a bird design hidden in there though!

Not a fan of heights, but this is still very cool. Great use of the silver droid bit, and the polka dots. And 6 months to post it! O_o That's dedicated!

Hurrah, the Bristol Balloon Fiesta. Yes, you were very lucky to go up in a balloon twice and not have to pay either time! Great model.
