In an attempt to replace the current topic, Re: Frank - Houston & IKE,
I have tried to find something that has not been discussed before.
Message searches indicated that the word, aluminum has been used but
that the words, anodize and anodized have not. Anodized aluminum can
be dyed and printed, meaning that it could be used to convert plans
for card stock display models of ships and boats into more durable
aluminum working models of ships and boats. Card stock designs are
protected by copyrights, so anyone who is interested in this
suggestion should contact the appropriate designers to suggest that
conversion of their designs for card stock display models into kits
for aluminum working models could provide additional income without
cannibalizing their income from the sales of card stock display models.
