Authentic Models Royal Aero Balloon Model - Blue
Product Code: AU0227
The Authentic Models Royal Aero balloon model combines colour, décor and science, all-in-one.
As fascinating today as they were centuries ago, this beautifully crafted model lets you imagine viewing the earth from above, free as a bird, holding onto a balloon basket.
Complete with carefully crafted rattan basket hanging from hand-knotted netting and wood toggles, the balloon carries small ballast sand bags at the ready.
Hand cut and hand applied paper covers the lightweight spherical core.
Iconic and inspiring helium filled balloons were one of the aviation world's first successes. Since 1783 balloons have travelled the skies and inspired this fabulous Authentic Models piece.
