Your tribute to him is this world-wide community of enthusiasts that you have created, along with the  beautiful models you have produced. If you got your drive, dedication & patience from him, then truly, he still lives through you, and in that sense we've all had the privilege of knowing him. . .
And dammit, 93 is a good long run by any measure (my Dad only made it to 79)
A Glass raised to your Dad,
Rob

There is something fundamentally amiss with a society which forces it's modelers to work for a living.

Des, I never met your father but he must have been a good man because he raised a great son. My heart goes out to you and your family.
