      Hello friends:


      A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to meet Gerald Wingrove at his home in Spain. Mr. Wingrove is a wonderful person who brought me through one of the best evenings of my life. I was fortunate to see their wonderful models and all I can say is they take me away the air. Here are some pictures of their cars. Later I'll upload more pictures.

    Can I get a personal tour as well. Please, please, please.

    Please ask Gerald when he's going to come back and share more of his wisdom with us. Or better yet, post one of his builds on the site so everyone can see step by step how he builds these amazing cars.

    A few months back someone posted a thread about some Wingrove models they had inherited, a Model T ford frame and engine in raw brass and while they were well done, they were not like these posted here. I had heard so much about his work and was wondering why were people always referring to him as the benchmark of fine scratch building. Now you've given me the answer. WOW! Now I know why he is held in such high regard. Unbelievable work.

    Mr. Wingrove is the reason I got back into modeling. I was getting the itch to build something but I hadn't done anything in 20+ years. I was browsing one night to see what had changed and I came across Mr. Wingrove site. I was hooked. I started out wanting to build plastic models but after seeing what he was doing, I bought a small lathe and mill and got to work. While my quality is not up to his standards, I am quite happy with the results. Meeting Mr. Wingrove is on my bucket list of things to get done in my lifetime.

    In your header for this thread, you entered Scale: 1/8. Aren't most of them 1/15?

    Yes Sjordan, they are scale 1/15. The header doesn`t have the 1/15 option. I am sorry but I just tried to show Mr. Wingrove work.

    If he didn't get workshop photos, Mr. Wingrove's website has features on workshops 1968 to 2000:
