An Afternoon with Dave BrackmanDave Brackman is another regular at Ivinghoe Beacon with whom I passed a fascinating afternoon at his home.
After starting in the fashion business, Dave turned to his first love, fine-art painting, where he specialises in intricate nautical canvases.
A brief look at his paintings shows why his work is in such demand...
Dave's a proficient flyer and scratch builder having taught himself GRP moulding. He received a medal at the Model Engineer Exhibition with a superb miniature scratch-built battleship.

Uses three tiny Naro servos. Inset shows Naro servo next to Futaba 148 for comparison.
