Meet The Team - Dan
How long have you been with Wonderland Models? My first shift at Wonderland Models was 18th December 2020, so not too long ago. I joined after previously working as a commercial pilot for the regional airline Flybe, with over 1500 hours experience. Unfortunately, something called COVID (whatever that is) meant that Flybe went bankrupt. Thankfully working at Wonderland was the next best thing, although the aircraft are quite a bit smaller!
Role/Department: Sales assistant and web order processor.
Specialist Subject: With my background in aviation, with this starting from a very young age, I’ve always had a big interest in the plastic aircraft kits. However, I also have a huge interest in cars and motorsport, so anything from plastic car kits to Scalextric also works for me.
Favourite Food: Cannot beat a wood-fired four cheese pizza with a sourdough crust!
Favourite Biscuit: Custard creams, every time.
Favourite Film: Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back
Favourite Character: Bane – The Dark Knight Rises
Favourite sport, who’s your team? Formula 1 (although any form of motorsport is fine with me). McLaren would be my favourite team.
Hobbies: As an extension of being interested in aviation, visiting military airfields and going to airshows has always been something I have enjoyed. If I’m not found at an airfield then I tend to head to race circuits. My passion for amateur photography has tied in with both of these activities quite nicely as well!
