Pre cut fabric kits

 For some years now I have been working to create a set of designs which are easy to home assemble. The kits use standard hot air balloon fabrics with specific low flammability and low porosity fabrics and come in a wide variety of colours. The design is specifically focused at the home assembly market, and can be completed with only basic sewing machine skills. each kit is accompanied with an instruction manual detailing tools and techniques to complete the project.

 

AMBalloons kits have been used in a variety of projects both within the U.K and overseas. These range from schools science projects to aerial photography, to hobby projects for long winter nights.

 The kits can be provided in any number of gores, and any number of panels which you choose, volumes of balloons are also adaptable as to some extent is the overall shape of the envelope - commonly this is kept to the AM7  set of designs see `current production' for further details.

 

International shipping

I've found that sending model balloons overseas is often best done when they are still kits - this has a significant impact on the cost of shipping as the otherwise heavy package can be separated into smaller parcels.

A recent project in South Africa worked in this way, the results can be seen here at the balloons test inflation just 4 weeks after cutting began in the U.K.
