I don't think that license is valid unless the National Rivet Counters Association signs off on it...  ^_^

Well, just let me know when the licensing requirement starts.  I already know a couple of modelers I'd like to nominate for suspended licenses.  :P

I remember that many years ago someone was trying to sell those on eBay!  Seriously!  Only with your name and stuff filled in.

Would this be valid in Canada to, and what about the UK they drive on the other side of the road.  This just looks like more trouble then it is worth.   I just dunno.

I think you need a Modeling CDL to qualify as a 'Pro Builder.'

Uh-oh. Looks like the one I've been using is a forgery! I paid good money for that, and now I find out it's not worth the plastic it's molded in.
