Jim, no matter what the question is, it's great to have you back on the board posting. It's been years since you've shown us new work. I've grown a beard, my nails too have grown long and curly . . . I will soon die of old age waiting to see some new eye candy from you. :lol: :lol: :lol:

How's that for some serious and heavy hinting! ;) ;) ;)

We had to get him back from that Southern Utah resort town in order to get him back to the bench!

He showed us the beginnings of his garage diorama at the club meeting the other night ... that's gonna be something!!

A little arm-twisting and we've even gotten Jim to dust off the computer, so we'll do what we can to keep him motor-vated to hang here.

As Jim Fernandez said, you may be thinking of Jim Wood (one of the founders of Moonlight Modelers).

But you're also right ... "Hollywood" Jim Fernandez is a character!

Gee, it's rare when a person can torture Dr. Cranky.
Maybe I should let him twist in the wind for a while as I try to figure out how to take advantage of this new found leverage.

Or, I may be nice to him and just start posting some progress photos on the diorama thread.

As long as you keep feeding us the great eye candy we don't care what you do to Doctor Cranky!

Is it a sign of madness when you start addressing yourself in the third person?

It worked for Bob Dole back in the day. :lol: :lol: :lol:

As one of the early group of Moonlight'rs, I was wondering how Jim Wood is doing.
His eyes were getting bad when I was last active in the club.
Many years ago I sponsored the engineering award for a few of the contests.

For many years, Jim has been dealing in Hotwheels (buying low, selling high) and that gradually took over his (plastic) building time. Jim "retired" from plastic a few years ago, but he's still a Moonlight member and shows up once a year or so for a club meeting. Most commonly, we see him at swap meets.

However, he had a massive heart attack a couple of weeks ago, resulting in quad-bypass surgery. He's still hospitalized and recovering but doing okay.
