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.


  1. Fantastic models - more please!

  2. Totaly agree with "poverty is a great motivator.", its why so much of my work is scratch built! Some realy nice vehicles here.

  3. Couldn't agree more, with your friends' quote!!
    Great work by the way!!
