HAND MADE CUSTOM RED WHITE & BLUE G SCALE HOT AIR BALLOON UNIQUE ONE OF A KIND WORK OF ART!

I bought this online six years ago. I was told the owner had made it by hand and had spent countless hours getting the wire? frame correct and getting the canvas to fit perfectly. What I know for certain is it's a beautifully made, one of kind gem. I don't remember exactly how much I paid but it was around $200. It measures approx. 14" tall by 9" wide and as you can see in picture # 6 it contrasts perfectly with G scale cars. I originally planned to hook it up to my Rigi-Duo cable car and have it move back and forth using the MTS controller. Unfortunately like a lot of other 'projects' in my life it all came to a screeching halt when I started getting sick. The good news is it's been sitting in a box since shortly after I got it. Since it's a custom made 'one of' there's no box but it will be wrapped and shipped carefully. It's not fragile and the paint is in excellent condition.

I'm going to start it at $89.99 and trust that enough of you will love it as much as I do so that maybe I'll get my money back. I've come to the realization that 2005 dollars were worth a lot less than 2011's oh well...

S&H will be $19.95 with $10 surcharge for Canada, AL, HA & PR. As always I'll ship anywhere the postal authorities can be trusted and if your outside the US or Canada please contact me before bidding & I'll get you the best price quote available. All our items come from a non-smoking home.

Please feel free to ask any questions I'll respond ASAP!

As always thanks for checking my auctions. My wife will be listing Clothing, Watches & Jewelry again probably starting this weekend. Please check on her Ebay listings at Lynne861.
