An architect and model maker by choice, Richard is passionate about detail, with particular focus on the obscure and lesser-modelled Irish prototypes – brake vans, permanent way stock, iconic buildings, and everything in between. He gladly has no time for any other hobbies as he is in constant pursuit of new, exciting, and unorthodox projects.
