That's a good point, Bob (mouse Amyloid controls for human sections)
The amyloid produced by these various mouse models (TASTPM, TGs) is   human amyloid....as you know.
I suspect that it wouldn't be accepted as a positive control ( I don't know) because it isn't pathologically produced
It is genetically induced ( as you know)

I have posted images of IHC- and Congo red-positivity ( the latter also under fluorescence microscope) of amyloid in mouse brain here ( Histonet  Images archive)
