A call to arms for US modellers

The upcoming Military Toy Replica Act (pdf) will prohibit military contractors from requiring exorbitant licence fees for the reproduction of their products as models and toys. The amounts being demanded at the moment could keep a large number of subjects never being modelled, equipment that US taxpayers- at least- have already paid to have developed. The arrogance is just stupid.

The Hobby Manufacturers Association is organising the lobbying and wants model-makers to keep the pressure on the House Armed Services Committee.
