You don't really see many hot air balloons done in Lego, except for a couple of old Adventurers sets. I'd love to be able to offer different colors and patterns for the balloon - I experimented but the red/white/blue was the most appealing, given the slim color choices for some of the parts. I know the balloon is a little too small to be realistic, but any bigger and I'm afraid it'd be too awkward to handle and this set is really meant for play. I included the chase truck because every hot air balloon needs one, and because I always enjoy getting an extra vehicle. The balloon's basket can fit 3 or 4 minifigs, the truck can hold 2. Enjoy!
A view from the gondola...and who'd have thought Conan O'Brien enjoyed ballooning?
