Hi RBI,

Do you work for RAL?? If so do you have a responce as to the position RAL takes on this type of situation? I have not seen it and maybe it is there and published already.


Of course if you are prominent in an industry the odds are far greater that people will like your work, Modellers will never in most cases ever own an actual vessel themselves, and very few will skipper them so the model build is the next best option. I think that under ligitimate circumstances there should be no restriction on building as long as it is not for commercial gain and they are advertised as such throught retail and hobby outlets. There will always be backyard operators who are just in it for the money but these consequences are certainly miniscule in comparison to full sized ship building in Asia and far East. If there is a big problem with blatant copyright infringement for commercial gain by all means enforce your rights, it is your product and design.

It is obvious that you do not need to release any drawings, it is proven to be not needed, but please state some place your position and /or endorse a little the art of model tug building and then modeller will not feel they are acting illegially and be driven underground. They will still build regardless.

Looking for a positive and pleasant responce to end this issue.


Regards
VANYA

I'm with Spuds.  I had no idea that by wanting to build that neat little tug, it was going to cause so much conversation.  On word with the build.......

Thanks Ron,

It is nice to hear from an important source regarding in this controversy and hopefully it will end quickly.

So in the past there have been copyright infringements that have spoiled the other 99% of us and maybe soured the outlook from the RAL company which is understood in that context.

So.......... is it OK for a private hobby model maker to use the limited information that is freely displayed on the web, in industry publications and through there own photos for them to construct A ( i.e one) working model of a RAL designed tugboat.

It is a yes on no answer.

Regards

I must be getting old   ::)   or to many cocktails   :o    I forgot to bring my camera with me to my shop today.
  Over the weekend I added about 6 inches to the keel.  My thinking was that if I want to tow from the stern,  that might help with the tracking.  And I started on the splitter for making the 2 piece mold.  Not an easy task.  Lots of cutting and fitting and cussing.
