I agree with you on the shows. I've been down that road also with a person who was taking claim to fame on my products, until I introduced myself to him. I asked all sorts of questions about his resin casting with a large crowd standing around and he proceeded to tell everyone how he made the truck masters and then molded them and all that, but when I popped the question "Isn't that Bill Drennen's W900L?" His chin hit the floor and didn't know what to say. Then I said to him, "I'm Bill Drennen and that is my work you are taking credit for." Then we had a discussion about making sure he is doing the right thing and not being a pirate.
Thank you for the support.
That's the best way to bust them Bill when they don't know what you look like and then the big surprised look on there face.
