Amature stuff Aussie.

As he says its a hobby not a profession he mentions not mass producing them yet he has 4 model cars in various states of build. Like his wagons he never just makes one. Whats that he sells them does that not make it a profession :rolleyes: making colletor pieces. I agree with the US tax dept he is a professional artist not a hobbiest

A purest is Bill never can step outside the limits, must be a real object, now if he was asked to build a model of anything other than a US made piece he'd cringe, wouldn't know how cant in fact. Believes that no other design was ever used or implemented.:U:;

Ask him to make a toy Ross.
