James Hylton Dodge Coronet
« on: December 18, 2020, 08:11:00 PM »
I had to quit building models this past year after being diagnosed and treated for pancreatic cancer. A few months ago I felt good enough to start working on some models again. It was great therapy for me even though I couldn't do my hand lettering. Maybe one day I can get back to where I was at one time but I'm enjoying what I'm doing right now. Here is a James Hylton Dodge and I have completed several other NASCAR builds using decals and kits I had put back to build "one day."

This made my day Jackie! The build is terrific "Gatorific" as usual, but seeing a post with your avatar truly brightened my day!- David
I appreciate people that actually build and post models.

....I have to echo the sentiments of the others in saying that its great to see you back building again :) and by the way, your build skills have not suffered any, it looks great.

  Was thinking about you recently.....while looking for something else in the hobby room, I stumbled across the box containing the bodies that I ordered from you a while back....I still have all good intentions on using them for a build someday....anyway, I opened it back up and un stacked the bodies to take another look at them and a flood of ideas came to mind on what to do with each one.....someday I'll make the ideas happen

  I do hope that your health continues to improve and that you are able to sustain a quality of life that you deserve.
