Drachen Ballon 1/72

After seven years have passed since I designed this model, I finally decided to build it.

The paper is too thick (200 gr / m2) and the glue is not very suitable, but I have to use it (only the grocery stores are open, due to the containment measures of the virus).

Overcome the torture of the construction of the two half-spheres and the gluing of the rudder, I am moving on to insert the ropes of the basket and those that come down to the ground

See you soon.

I started pulling on the ropes of the rudder bag.

The operation is more fun than complicated (for the moment).
