AAM- Art Anderson, still around?

Recommended Posts

I saw a few pieces of All American Models on eBay recently and it got me wondering if Art Anderson was still around the hobby and if he still creates masters for resin casting? I remember him being on the Scale Auto Forum a lot a few years ago sharing his knowledge of the hobby, including his resin casting business and owning a hobby shop at one time. Haven't seen him around here in a while, anybody have an update?

Art is still around...AAM long gone

Thanks Dave, do you think he will be at the NNL Toledo? They are saying a lot of the big names are going to be there and I remember people talking about Art being a big part of this hobby for a long time!

Art has attended Toledo in the past...not heard him say about this year.

Art's a little busy preparing to be sentenced after pleading guilty to 2 felony counts of possession of child pornography and one felony count of obstruction of justice via destruction of evidence (for when he took a hammer to his flash drive of kiddie porn when the cops showed up) stemming from his arrest back in March to really be worrying about the last NNL. Granted his sentencing date got continued from before Labor Day into November, but I'm not sure he can leave Indiana while he's out on bail.

We weren't permitted to discuss this in March and I'm sure people will quickly fire and brimstone this down despite the fact it should be common knowledge to everyone. But back then it was "allegedly", but he please guilty to all counts back in July, so it's just fact at this point.

Wow! 

That might explain why he hasn't been around much, especially if they confiscated his computer.

I had heard something of that nature awhile ago as I sometimes see Art at a local swap meet that's held twice a year.

Just to be clear for the people whispering behind my back, I'm not "gleeful", I'm disgusted with his behavior. We've all had our kids around this guy at some point and time and the stuff which he was charged with is the worst of the worst type of material, not some topless teenage girls.

I'm also amused that the same people who wanted to sweep all of this under the rug 6 months ago are now pushing an agenda that Art is senile and suffering from dementia. He seemed pretty with it to me when he was repping Moebius at NNL East a year or two ago. If you sincerely believe you wake up one day with short term memory issues and that makes you a pedophile...man I don't know what to tell you. He was arrested because he had that material on a computer he took in for service after the prior one imploded. He had a thumb drive full of this stuff - which as previously mentioned he attempted to destroy when the cops came a knockin' - and admitted that was because it made it easy to transfer his collection between computers. That doesn't sound like a guy who can't remember if he put on underwear this morning to me.

This is not the place for these discussions. Take it off forum if you need to continue.
