Great! Post a pic when you can!

making the baloon part rigth now....

Awesome! Post some photos when you do.

I've made the hull twice at two different sizes. It printed well, but the ropes were a problem.

If you decide to print the ropes and the railings, lay them flat so that your printer creates them in long strokes rather than short rings (if that makes any sense). That will make them sturdier.

Thank you! I've been working on this for a long time... it's really my first big thing that I've modeled myself from scratch rather than cobbling together bits and pieces of other peoples' models (including yours!) in Thingiverse. I intend to print it out at some point, but it looks like it will take a few days to complete all the pieces, providing nothing goes wrong. I'm particularly worried about those ropes printing well. But we'll see. Let me know if you give it a try!
