Hot Air Balloon / Boat - 70603




--.-- = my face when I realize this set is one balloon part short to make a complete envelope.

Is it a boat? Is it a balloon?
Anchor and sandbags, that's the Baloat!

Does anyone know if this has ever been built IRL? My own searches suggested the engineering might be too complicated and the idea too stupid.

    Just great!
    If you like add a flame to heat the balloon - 6126b or 85959 - one that suits to the scale of your model.
    Can you make a photo about how you attached the balloon parts in the basement end?
    By the way - in your description you mention the idea would be too stupid - it's absolutely not:-) In the official sets there are much more than enough phantasy "monsters and mini-planes to sit-on" seeming quite dumb. I have come across many sets, but not yet such a balloon-boat combined one.

    Good use of the balloon! I'm not sure if they have made an official hot air balloon before, but I think they should if it has not been done yet.

      Thanks! Way, way back in the 90's I had a official Lego hot-air balloon.
      As I recall it used a different single, round piece for the envelop and those rigging pieces on the pirate ship to connect it to the basket. It ruled :)
