German Drachen Balloon
« on: October 04, 2018, 12:10:50 PM »
Hello,

I'm looking for drawings of a German Drachen (aka sausage) observation balloon. I intend to 3D model it and make the 3D print files open-source and free to whoever wants them. I'd also like to look into 3D printing one in either 1/72 or 1/144 and using the result as a mold for vacuum-forming one. Tired of waiting for someone else to make the kit. I'd really like to see a Drachen on the shelf next to all my WWI stuff.

Thanks!

Bill

If anyone wants to purchase a mint resin 1:72 scale kit of a Drachen at reasonable price,please contact me at the usual Albatros email address.

Sorry Bill, I just noticed your post today. I have attached a drawing I used although I had to compress it so it could be sent.
