"David has an unusually clear view of the weapon systems and vehicles of the United States in World War 1 and 2. I would endorse David for any museum or movie producer who wishes to have authentic representations for the hardware that made America great. Dave can make anything that might support your project.

I acquired my first artifact when I was 16 years old. It was a 37 mm tank round from WW1 dated 1917.
40 years later I am still an avid student of the Great War....and still collecting WW1 artifacts.
Based on my mechanical and engineering back ground I have a different slant on my findings from WW1. My interests lay in the mechanical development and escalation of the weapons, machines and tactics of the armies engaged in the brutal world war.
