    Don, thank you for posting this story!
    Mr. Kirn has done an incredible job building this Packard! Especially that he took the Wingrove scale of 1:15. After working in the 1:20 scale Mr. Wingrove choose the bigger 1:15 to get space for more details. Compared to the other masters who worked mostly in 1:12 or 1:10 scale 1:15 is small for such a high grade of detailling!
    Respect!

    Hello Jens! You and Mr. Kirn are of the same small group, who were fortunate enough to have been in contact with Mr. Wingrove. I have tried to contact Francisco Pulido with no success.

    Do you know any of the other gentlemen who were featured in the “Other Modelers Gallery”?

    There are two other famous modellers from the seventies not mentioned in the last post who come to mind.
    Carlo Brianza who's studio was at Tradate Italy and Guiseppe Da Corte from Rome.

    Hello Noel, yes your definitely right! -they were important, and Sr. Brianza did much to usher in the use of casting PAST MASTERS and PIONEERS resin PAST MASTERS and PIONEERS in creating models in part or whole, and photo-etched parts for accessory details.

    And?,

    I did mention them both, pretty early on in this thread.

    The fault is mine for not having established a timeline. When I started this thread I had no idea what I was doing! -I was in some instances still learning myself who made what? Where? And when?

    Also, my big failing is being an English only modeler! (The language, that is) I have tried to be inclusive of modelers the world over, but in the end it's a poor showing. I know that in Japan, Mexico, Austria, Tibet, and even Canada! -there are modelers who have work that deserves being noted!

    Some have offered up "New to Me" bits, but I had hoped there would be more!

    Another American modeler, and another from Southern California, Don Edmunds.

    A really talented man, a professional driver, a builder and designer of actual racecars.(Over 600!!) His specialty was open wheeled cars. (The CHEETAH being an "almost" open wheel car). -And his specialty of specialties, would be Quarter Racers, and Sprint Cars.

    He had a very long career, was very very well thought of, and after "Retiring" he took up making models! -of cars he knew well, and cars he admired.

    Like others, Carlo Brianza for instance, he worked in an odd scale, 1/7th and a half! (This was done to make use of tires that were available.) He also worked in 1/4th scale.

    For now I only have theses two photos, I'm certain I have a few more.

    I mentioned this model a few weeks ago, a 1/6th scale Norton MANX, completely from scratch!

    PAST MASTERS and PIONEERS-norton-manx-model-pic-5-jpg

    This photo is from 2012, and can be found on RED DEVIL Motors' website.

    But the model was made back in 1954 / 55!!!!

    On the Red Devil Motors site, they state that the model was made by a Mr. Bert Hooper. -I guess H is the abbreviation for Herbert?

    The commentator on the Red Devil website makes mention of the correct details found on the tyres, so I assume that they were made from scratch, but unfortunately those techniques were not mentioned in the article from 1955.

    However, much was described, and in detail. The forming of Mud Guards, creation of an Aluminium fuel tank, wheel hubs, steering forks, and more!

    The creation of individual chain links.

    PAST MASTERS and PIONEERS-img_1977-jpg

    Remember it would have required two punchings and two cut spacers per segment.

    Making that, 370 individual stampings, to create half as many chain links!
