That darned bridge!

Postby arryn43 » Thu Sep 18, 2014 6:59 pm

Well as noted in my intro...i am the mad builder of an 1/8 (yes you read that right!) Original series bridge :D
although it has been shelved for the moment, it does keep tempting me from the top shelf.
Anyway here's a couple of snaps to show you all how far I got.....enjoy

I'm so sorry to hear about your health. I wouldn't want to give you false hope, but my wife has lived beyond the expectations. She had participated in a drug trial for about a year, which showed promise with her, but was discontinued. All sorts of work is being done, possibly being able to give you additional time or could be effective in your case.

For your project, maybe we could enlist the help of the talented modelers in this forum to help you complete it.

I am very sorry to hear about your health as well.

I agree with slawton's comment. Maybe there is someone here who can work alongside you on this project, to help ensure it will be completed.

Positive Vibes sent your way.

I second this. We're all sending positive vibes your way.
