True but if it is handmade it is interesting..... depending on the price .....sort of punk art maybe.

  Not TL17 but it is a tin model made in China sold at Marshalls and Home Goods stores for around $15 to $20. About 2 years ago I bought an Ahrens-Fox made by the same manufacturer at a Marshalls in Brooklyn for $15 and was able to resell it for $35.

Here's another model I copied off a TV show a while ago.  Looks like the same sort of construction, I think I heard it was a commercially produced toy - wonder why these were all so primitive.  I'd think it was meant to be a Model L Mack.
