Tinkercad Father Day’s challenge winner
by Franky | June 18, 2012
About 2 weeks ago we announced the winner of the Father’s Day Challenge hosted by Tinkercad. Sam McCulloch’s Vulcan Bomber was voted as the number 1 design. Not only was his Dad very happy with the 3D printed gift, he also did a nice job on painting the model.
But there’s more to it. Sam’s Dad, David McCulloch is a volunteer at the XM655 maintenance and preservation society. He’s been a lifelong fan of aircrafts, got his pilot license at the age of 17, and works closely with the Oxford 150 Squadron Air Cadets.
As Father’s day 2012 coincided perfectly with an annual event called “Wings and Wheels”, the real Vulcan Bomber did some taxi runs, engine blasts, and was available for the public to examine.
Being a volunteer, David McCulloch dedicates a lot of time to the restoration project. It also seems they’re actively looking to continue to raise funds of ongoing restoration costs. So, all you aviation enthusiasts out there get in touch!
Tinkercad is the easiest way to do and learn 3D design on the web. If you like Sam’s model, you can easily copy and thinker it. And why not get it 3D printed? I heard the prime gray material is awesome…
