3D model description

Hello everyone,
This is my air balloon models for my ho scale layout.
All the parts you see are included in the files except of the poles which I used just metal poles that I had to connect everything together. You can use whatever you like to hold it. All the parts have holes to place the poles.
in order to build it you should follow the pictures I uploaded (the picture where you can see all the parts together).

All the balloons you see in the photos have been added so there are variety of different balloons you can print (such as Aladdin Reese's, Sprite, Lego, etc...). When downloading you will get them all.

I found it hard to print the full body in one piece even with the adding of brim/raft support. Therefor, I would recommend printing it with the base I added there. In order to remove the base one can use several method : hot knife, scissors, break it with the hand, etc...
Anyways, I uploaded the body without the raft as well.

The reason I made my balloons with clip is to hang them to the ceiling. In case you don't want to, I uploaded a file without a clip for your convenient.

Hope you will enjoy them, If you have any questions feel free to ask.
If you choose to support and buy them, please post your finished work so I can see.

Good luck :)

3D printing settings

I printed with my Ender 3 S1 Pro without supports.
If you don't want to use my base you may wanna use thick brim/raft in order to print the body in one piece.
I painted all the balloons with acrylic paints..
