Introducing Mat Irvine: a master of the model world

SMN is delighted to welcome Mat Irvine aboard the site. Mat is well regarded as the ‘Dean of TV Special Effects’ and has written many modelling books, including two that we’ve reviewed here in the last few weeks.

Mat is also known as ‘Keeper of the Dog’, said animal being K-9, Doctor Who’s famed robodog. Mat maintains K-9 in full working order, and demos the little mechanoid regularly, to devoted Who fans. Mat is touring in the USA at present, and will be sending over on-the-spot reports while he’s on the move.

The pic of Mat above btw was featured in a recent convention in London. To see what's happening in July this year, visit the London Film and Comic Con.
