Well ,about this idea of going commercial with our own model line...
Ana and me are already working on her line and models, but it would be a nice idea to do this indeed.
The interestest people could put in some money, to make a solid base to start with, and this doesn't have to be so much money.
All the deetails can be spoken over of course, but better in PM i think.
When Ana would like to be our main sculptor here, that would be the first great issue, and a good base, other things could be worked out easily.
Lets say this works, and we do sell reasonly good, we could save this money on an account(after paying our debts for the work of the sculptor, materials, having a web-site for the sales and so on), and split this money through the people which were investing, and were able to buy every years new items for our collections...
Wouldn't that be nice?
Earning the money to buy our wanted items every year, by selling models to other collectors for example...
Or just take out the money of your share of the "pot" for an item you want to buy.
Just a quick example of my idea's on that, but it could work out i think...

To evaluate the prospects of this idea, first of all we need a draft business plan for such a venture. Who on this forum has competence to draw it out?

I think the particulars would depend on the country in which the business is set-up.

I think Europe would be the best for that, as it is in the middle of all...
And our sculptor lives here.

I agree, Europe would be the best place to start.
