Dave White, father of Shed member Graham, visited the Shed today (3 November 2023) to show off some of the model vehicles that he has built since retiring some years ago. Some of these impressive models are built from purchased plans, while others are designed and built by Dave himself.
The models are mainly built from hardwood (typically salvaged from old furniture!) and are hand painted. The most impressive was probably the extending crane, with the steam engine not far behind, however they are all fantastic. The most fun was the windmill that includes a model of a man hand-starting a vintage car: Dave has made several of these and has refined the design over several iterations.
