In 1967, Wingrove quit his job as a lathe operator to create models full-time.[1] Working with his wife Phyllis, he created about four automobile models a year, always by request and usually on a 1:15 scale. His work was featured on Top Gear in 1998. In July 2000, he was made a Member of the Order of the British Empire for craftsmanship.
