As a manufacturer, if somebody produced a resin part to MODIFY one of my
kits (such as Martin did this year) I would have no problem with it,
although I would like to have the person ask permission first (Martin did
have my blessing such as it is). The assumption here of course is that you
will BUY a kit to do the conversion work on. However, using the tool and die
work that I paid (dearly) for as a master for a kit you plan to produce and
sell to compete with my product would be a different matter all together.
The definition of what constitutes "a model of car X" may vary from one
person to the other. Some have taken us to task for not including Miner
brake wheels on a certain road's boxcar for example. Does this mean that we
"receiv(ed) full payment for something (we) didn't deliver"? If you don't
like something we do, vote with your checkbook - don't buy the kit. If you
think you can do better, have at it. Just don't use my product as your
I will now duck behind my monitor and await the incoming flak....
