Phil Reeves – Workshop Manager
Phil completed his course at the College of Marketing and Design in Dublin and trained at Gerard Crowley Model Makers in Bray, Southern Ireland. He then worked at Thorp Model Makers in London for two years where he learned the basics in Architectural model making. After being offered a job at DBP Models in Shepperton studios, Phil began his career in the film and television industry. After a few years, he started working for himself and established a small business working largely in the exhibition industry but still based at Shepperton.
In 2005, he was given a placement on the Thomas The Tank Engine production and stayed there for three seasons as a Senior Modeller. Following Thomas, he was offered a senior position on Orsum Island, again as a modeller, where he remained for a year.
