    Without giving my identity away, can I say a heart felt thanks on behalf of the family to all of you who have posted on this thread. It means a lot. Harvey was a true legend in the field of gunsmithing and model aircraft engine making. I think engineering artiste may describe him better. He will be sadly missed by those who knew him. He didn't mince words and made plenty of time and advice generously available to those with the right approach and attitude. We could all learn something from him. Regards to you all.

    My first memory of Harvey was when he was a Shepard on the Douglas farm in Cheviot along with my father, dad and Harvey built my mother’s spinning wheel over a few bottles ( quarts of beer) .Mum still has that spinning wheel to this day ..it must be 60years old at the minimum , Harvey was Flying remote control aircraft then , though the day he took us out, he lost a plane …like lost gone. Never to be seen again

    The next time we met he was running a deer farm out of ch ch, remember watching the all blacks on a black n white tv he was running a short wheel base Land Rover, we took it to town to replace the canvas cover….he had a place that backed onto the military base.

    A time long ago when land rovers were farm hacks and I was but a pup!
