David Tremont, Senior Model Maker

THURSDAY 28th JUNE

Models, miniatures, and bigatures – you name it, he’s made it.

Dave’s model-making career spanned several decades before receiving the fateful call from co-founder Richard Taylor to join Weta Workshop on The Lord of the Rings. In 2001, he moved to New Zealand, lending his skills to the siege tower of Minas Tirith, and the incredible 1:10 scale Grond.

Since Rings, Dave has had the chance to revisit his childhood whilst working on Thunderbirds Are Go, and channels his passion for model making into beautiful collectibles. He’s been involved in nearly every collectible we’ve produced!

TIME: 6:00pm

DURATION: 1.5 hours

PRICE: $75
