  • Homebuilt Lighter-than-air - how?

    Dear all,

    I would like to add some hot air balloons. They seem to be homebuilt - manufacturer is a person's name instead of a brand.

    How do I treat this?

    Add new manufacturers under "Lighter-than-air Aircraft"?

    Is there a category "Homebuilt Hot Air Ballon" under "Lighter-than-air Aircraft"?

    Or do I have to use "Homebuilt Aircraft" as entry point for my addition?

    Thanks a lot!

      Some deeper than usual google searching if the balloon is specialised shape will normally reveal the manufacturer. Could you post some pics please ?
      If it 'ain't broken........ Don't try to mend it !

            Format was wrong. The others where accepted.

            Builder was not included with the model
