Dave's World
Dave Barker's Godzilla Collection

First, A Sample of Dave's EXPLOSIVE Photo Techniques

For those of you new to the hobby, Dave Barker has gained the reputation for being "different". Dave is known for taking expensive model kits and subjecting them to flames and explosions. These outrageous acts are then captured on film. We should point out that Dave is a certified pyro Technician. He has worked on movies, TV specials, and Las Vegas theme parks. Some of Dave's earlier model work can be found in early issues of KitBuilders magazine. His latest work can be found in the pages of Amazing Figure Modeler. Dave resides in Las Vegas, NV.
