Hey guys. I have some bad news. I was originally going to sell this build then decided not to, Well i was hurt at work pretty good friday 3rd shift into saturday morning. So now i have to go out of work on comp and that's not going to cut it $$ wise so i had to sell this build for the extra cash. Not sure i would have been able to finish it at this point do to the extent of the injuries to my hand, I'm still going to need some surgeries. Hopefully at some point i will be able to get back to modeling and build something else, but at this point just worried about getting back to work sometime. I would like to thank everyone for there support and help and kind words during this build and hopefully the new owner will finish it off nicely and give me credit for building 90% of it when someone asks. I would like to give a Big thank you to Dave(comp1839) with out him this build wouldn't have been as accurate as it is and also thx. to Clay Kemp for taking the time to help me through this build also and Jim(micronitro) for making all the cool aluminum parts for it. This took forever to type one handed lol.

 

Joe

Joe... I am so sorry to hear about your hand. I will be praying for a speedy recovery and that the surgeries go well. That is a bummer that you had to sell this beautiful build but I understand the situation. I am sure gonna miss seeing updates on this build. I sure hope to see you do another 1/16th pro mod after your hand heals. You are a talented builder. I will tell you this much if we see this build completed by who ever bought it, we will know it was your work.

Umm that's sad news! I hope your hand gets better soon and surgeries go well. All that work you put into this beautiful build was fantastic, can we see this build being finished on this forum anyway by someone else?

Thx. For all the kind words fellas, definitely sucks but what are you going to do . Mike Boyd the driver of the winged express altered bought it. He said he will finish it at some point. Not sure if he is a member here or not, He said he is working on a 63 promod Bette now with a brass chassis.

Joe,

I'm terribly sorry to hear about your hand injury and your needing to sell your '57.  While models are lots of fun and the pasttime so many of us enjoy and look forward to doing, life and finances still take priority over our hobbies.  First and foremost, you're in my and lots of other people's prayers for successful upcoming surgeries and a full recovery down the road.  Lord willing, in time, you'll get back to building, and I, for one, will look forward to seeing your work in the future.  God bless...

Scott
