Bill, I just wanted to let you know that your 'Cuda inspired me to create a new account, just to tell you how impressed I am with your work. I've always tried to push the envelope with my modeling, and you, man, have done that in spades! Looking forward to seeing more progress. Work like yours only drives me to push myself harder! Thank you for the inspiration. Awesome work!

Bill,

It was quite a shock and disappointment after my praise of your great work, that it appeared for over one month and then it disappeared on your thread.

If you don't want certain people like myself from responding to you great work, them you need to learn how to block them.

Merry Christmas

Not Bill's doing. Posts after 11/25 until about a week ago were lost on the whole forum due to the server upgrade.

Art,

I find your explanation unbelievable for this reason, My praise of Bill's work appeared for over ONE MONTH and then it was TRASHED. In between my post, Bill sure had the time to respond to whom he wanted to.

Well, Bud, all I can say is that Bill is one of the nicest guys you would ever meet. Probably just an oversight, as I'm sure he would never slight anybody. My suggestion to you is to not get all wadded up over what happens on an internet forum, or you'll never sleep! There's a lot of room for misunderstandings...

But, it is true that posts were lost. Check for yourself:

If you are worried about people responding to every post you make and you are going to get upset over it you should stay off forum's in general then. I have had people miss my post's before, big deal it happen's. No need to ruin a nice build thread with petty stuff like that, put on your big boy pant's . Next time just shoot him or whoever else a PM about it.

The machining skills needed to do this are amazing. by far the most detailed and impressive model I have seen to date.

I found this build and I can't believe the quality. It's unreal to me seeing this. I wish I could see the rest of the build. To bad it got lost on the server move. Are there any plans to repost what's left of this build. I really enjoy what I have seen so far.

Please tell me me where I can see the rest of the work!

I talked to Bill (the builder) at the Heartland Model Car Nationals Sunday and he said he was simply "burned out" and hasn't done anything in more than a year.

That is sad news, hope he get his mojo back for building again.

This should be a hobby and an escape from stress, not a source of it

Wishing Bill well, thanks for the update
