The Davey Collection 1

A couple of pictures today from the extensive and most excellent collection from Gerard Davey of Hokitika

Much of Gerard's collection is scratch built from plastic card to a very high standard

The level of detail and painting on the collection is consistently improving; Gerard is oft quoted for saying "... poverty is a great motivator [for innovation]."


All are to scale and the kit looks just fine when mixed with standard plastic models. Gerard also has a nice figure collection and gun park too, but I'll show you that another time.
