|Steel charity relay baton [message #19562] Sat, 23 October 2010 16:49 UTC
(tried to insert an image but I can't resize and it's huge - please see the attachment for a picture)|
I designed this as a relay baton for a group of young graduates in my company who undertook a charity relay (in aid of the Great Western Air Ambulance) through a lot of aerospace sites in the UK as part of the BAC100 celebrations (100 years of aerospace on Bristol)
It's antique bronze finish steel featuring outline models of some famous aircraft linked with Bristol and should be auctioned soon - we hope it will raise a good amount of money.
I was really pleased with the finish and, having had a white strong and flexible prototype made I was also gratified by the 'heft' of the steel model - I know steel should be heavy but it did make it feel very nice.
Thanks also go to Shapeways for great efforts to meet a deadline I'd shaved a little close...
