Dave has been doing detailed models
of aircraft, automobiles, and other replicas for
a number of years for himself and for other
clients. Some examples of his work are shown
below. Dave has done three superb Whirlybirds
models for me in both 1/35th and 1/72nd scales,
including the 1/35th scale model you see above.
One of the 1/72nd models he did for me will be
used in an upcoming Whirlybirds hangar display I
am doing. Dave would be thrilled to do a model of
any Bell 47 helicopter you might like. Perhaps
you have an idea of one or maybe you own one. You
could have a beautiful scale model of your actual
Bell 47 if you like. Dave will do a model for you
to your exact specifications.
If you would like
to discuss having Dave do a model for you, just
email him at firstname.lastname@example.org . He is easy to deal with
and you won't be disappointed with the result.
Tell him Lance sent you. :-) I'll take the blame.
I hope you enjoy the pictures of David's work.
