[Model making]

Model makers are in fact artists. It is the aim of every model maker to create a three-dimensional representation of some vision or idea that usually starts as a sketch scribbled on a napkin or notepad.

"I have always been fascinated with models, whether they be railways, scale models of real items, advertising and movie props or strange creations purely made for the fun of it."

"I am attracted to the television and film industry in a model making and prop making capacity and hope to head in that direction in 2008."

"I make my own models for fun and to hone my skills. The three examples below were during a period where I was contracted to work for Kennedy Model Making in Alicetown, Wellington."

I had a few days on this model and worked on various small details. I also sourced a high torque motor geared down to revolve slowly. This was used on the top of the model to spin the "radar", which I also designed and made.

"I came in about halfway through this project. I was asked to fabricate the clear acrylic windshield for the spacecraft, this was fitted to a metal frame which had already been constructed. I also spent a many hours shaping, filling and sanding parts of the craft to prepare it for the final coat of paint."

"The latest project I worked on for Kennedy Model making was an automobile advertisment. I was asked to create two watertight tanks, one for each of the station wagons. The edges of the tanks were completely concealed when viewed side on, so that when water was tipped from one car to the other it gave the illusion that the the back of the car was filled with water which was then poured into the back of the other vehicle."

"I also spent a lot of time making various parts for the car, sanding, priming, filling with bog and more sanding."

"I was asked to produce a interesting small gift which went in a promotional pack during the lead up to The Lord of the Rings. We produced a golden ring encapsulated in a resin "rock" with one face polished so you could see inside. Across the side of the rock the Lord of the Rings logo was laser engraved and ink filled."
