The Kit Now Departing …

The kit now departing is one of a batch of models of various scales and genres that simply put I won’t get around to building. Not only do I have a number of railway kits that come into that category I’ve assorted aircraft boats and cars too. The kit above is a simple Ford Transit kit in resin. The outline is excellent as is the detail, and its about ten years old. It does show how much further other modelling genres are in using resin, there are very few UK railway resin kits that are comparable to the quality of even some of the basic car, and aircraft detail kits that are available for their respective modellers. This Tranny kit too has been superseded in a way as you can now buy a pretty good 1/43 scale die-cast model for less than the original cost of the kit. This too has crossed over to the model railway field, the Thompson coaches in an earlier post have duplicated etched kits of the same diagram of coach. This is of course nice for our convenience, not so good for the kit manufacturer though, such is life.

On the subject of the previous post, it has been resolved to my satisfaction. However, I’m still amazed at the number of people who think that copyright doesn’t apply to them, or just make up their own version of copyright legislation in their heads and think that their rules apply to other people.

Google says this on the matter;

Just because you find it on Google, doesn’t mean you can use it. If you have copyright concerns then take legal advice on it, not listen to ‘some bloke down the pub/on a forum’. Most of the time they’ll be talking out of their arse.
