Way back in 1990, when I worked in Southport, the local Atkinson Gallery held an Eagle and Dan Dare exhibition to celebrate the work of Frank Hampson and the birth of Dan in a small corrugated lean to shed in nearby Churchtown village. Part of the exhibition centred around some astounding model work of ships featured in the strip such as the Anastasia. Fast forward to the present day and model maker Mike Burrows has unearthed some of the models from the exhibition, dusted them off and retouched a little flaking paint. Quality, I think you will agree, stand the test of time nicely.
