Make's Description

Excellent model @ reddadsteve!
I printed the model at 80% using Simplify3D.
I opted for a skateboard instead of a log. The skateboard, trucks and wheels were created by others at Thingiverse assembled with 2mm screws.
I used ColorFabb's nGen for all the parts. I painted Calvin's face and hands as I didn't have a decent flesh colored filament.
I'm giving the piece to my daughter in law for her 5th grade classroom.

Skateboard - can't find the original print or author. =(
Skateboard trucks -
Skateboard wheels -

Absolutely beautiful. Amazing job tying in the skateboard to the rest of the model.

Flesh color filament is a real toss-up, I've tried so many brands and am still looking for what I like. So the paint job worked out great.

Thank you for posting your make.
