Ooh look a model!. Dave 'modelling' the new T-shirt design at Driffield in 2012
Dave is a founder member of 580 Modellers and otherwise known as the 'Table Meister' as he generally takes over the setting up and laying out of the table at shows. He is well known for shunning anything small (!) and has an aversion to natural
metal or 'plain' finishes, prefering 'camo' whenever possible. He also likes to try something different and this has included everything from railway wagons to busses to UAVs, but his first love is undoubtedly 'Aggressor' schemes. He is also an
extremely capable armour modeller, particularly from the Vietnam era although recently he has been turning out a succession of more modern rubber tyred fighting vehicles which seem to be on the up amongst our armed forces at present. Most recently though,
Dave surprised us all by 'downsizing', become quite partial to the recent Airfix Spitfire releases in 1/48, with three already turned out in a short space of time.
Daves ability to 'sniff out' a bargain is legendary, particularly for extras within a
seemingly normal box. He is also a very good judge of a kit and will often buy, assess, mull over and then either decide to build or 'pass on'. As a result of this activity the size and make up of his stash is constantly changing and no one can
tell you its size or content!
