Hello,I have been building models since my youth and I built difficult models from Pocher of Italy and Revival.This book mostly covers the cars of the classic era and it has drawings and sidewievs of the models mentioned.The book is mostly black and white but it has a section of coloured pictures of the built models

All of the drawings are good,in scale and the techniques and descriptions are excellent .The author uses some custom made special tools which are not able to get from the market but I think they were described in the book 'Unimat Lathe Projects: A Beginners Guide to the Lathe and How to Make Ten Useful Tools' from the same author 0904568202.I did not find that book yet and no guarantees.

I will recommend this book for the advanced modellers who has scratch building skills and able to use multiple machines lathe,drill press and materials,plastic,wood,brass,leather etc..I hope these will help

Since Mr. Wingrove is one of the most famous master modellers this book is a must-have for everyone trying to start or improve a similar craft.

The book provides very clear steps in achieving this and just overflows with ideas and solutions. Personally I wish I would have purchased this book, and volume 2, years ago. Volume 1 explains how to start and undertake the project of creating a car model but should be accompanied by the second book from Mr. Wingrove. Both volumes complete each other in many ways where the second volume goes into the tools required and also deals with 1 complete car model project, being the Bugatti Royale. Highly Recommended!

What I like about this book is that it is written in the first place. How many times can you get instruction from a master? At first glance it may look like the stuff in this book is darn near impossible, but he explains everything. All you have to do is do what he says. When you look at a model ship and you see the seemingly endless rigging, it looks daunting. How did he do that? Well, it was done one knot at a time. If you take a similar approach to this book you will see your skillset increasing and your models coming together. I bought Vol 2 also. They go well together, and book 2 has plans for a Bugatti. You can build your version of an actual Wingrove model! With these two books you can see what the master sees, do what the master does, and with judicious application of patience and diligence, get the results the master does. Very valuable to me. Saves years of my own trial and error.
