807: (257/365) Won’t you come and fly ….

…in my beautiful balloon:

This is an 18 section balloon made from 6 modules that overlap and interleave, edge locks that secure the geometry, no glue, no cuts etc. I can see it decorating a small kid’s bedroom, surrounded by planes and rocket ships. Who wants it?

Designed by Yuri and Katrin Shumakov, this is an “Oriland” paper sculpture, and something i just started folding when I could not access a system last night and finished today.

The balloon envelope is 6 3:1 rectangles, the gondola hanging below is a smaller square – all folds only, no glue or cheaty double-sided tape or anything – quite remarkable really.
