In his first two books, "The Complete Car Modeler, and "The Complete Car Modeler 2" Mr. Wingrove takes you down the path of what he does to produce such masterpieces. I was rapt and have read them from cover to cover several times, each time picking up new tidbits that has helped me in my quest to become a better modeler.
In this third book, "Art of the Automobile in Minature", Mr. Wingrove shares the story of his life in modeling, from the beginning as a young man, giving you a view of his early years and the first projects that he produced. The formative years. As you progress through the book, marveling at these beautiful masterpieces, it is almost impossible to believe that they are "Minatures" in 1:15th scale. The way Mr. Wingrove stages them for photos leaves you to believe that they are full sized automobiles. Such is the Master Artisian at his craft.
In closing, this book captures not only the captivating art of the modeler, but your imiganiation as to what can be achieved with the right talent, dilligence, and planning. A must in the collection of any serious or aspiring modeler or any one who loves to see art in minature.
A most enjoyable read.
