No.. the real problem is someone stealing another person's work. The price is irrelevant, as is the company in question. Stealing is the real issue here, and the cloning/splashing of someone else's work is nothing but stealing.

Agreed, IMHO buying a clone also amounts to stealing.

No doubt !
Its only highlighted when big money involved.
Other than that people dont say a word !
People dont usually sweat the small stuff.


No matter what, big money or small money the principle remains the same.

Hello guys,

The factory clones continue at full power. The website is www.gugumodels.com.br. All planes are clones. Jets, pattern planes, giants 3d planes etc.. Clone carden, aeroworks, ZN line, skymaster, BVM, etc..

See this http://www.aspraer.com/modules/newbb...d=199&forum=10... sell the kit at R$4.500,00 or US$2.500,00. This kit is better original BVM.

The only thing worse than copying someone else's design for profit is being so brazenly proud of it.
Shameful to say the least.

I agree but, our world i strange....

Pharmacutical companies are protected by law during <10years after releasing a new drug after spending millions in research. Then Copy medicine is available on the same shelf in the drug store at a lower price.
Anyone here taking Non original medicine?

Moral is good, double moral twice as good......

By the way, I allways buy original products no matter what.

If someone decided to "clone" a F-100, or a A-4 or an F-16, Wouldnt that be cloning? People have been doing that since rc jets were born. Why is it ok for manufacturers to "clone" these kind of jets but the day someone clones a Bandit people go crazy. There have been many people who have cloned smaller identical versions of Bandits but no one says anything then.

I think if someone wants to put time and effort to build their own molds and produce an airplane that looks similar to a Bandit or any other airplane they have the right to do so. More power to you dude!

My two cents.

I guarantee you this guys "clone" will not put a dent on BV sales on his bandits. Clearly from what all you are saying here, so just leave the guy alone. If you wanna buy his jet buy it, if you dont, then dont. Plain and simple.

For me a lot depends on how much the original products cost & whether the original is an absolute rip off.

A report on television in Oz told of how Von Dutch clothing would no longer be officially distributed in Oz because of lost sales due to asian clones of their products as opposed to asian 'genuine' products.

A cloned baseball cap - $20, the 'genuine' Von Dutch baseball cap - $120. Yep, $120.

Perhaps if the manufacturers, importers, distributors, & retailers were not so outrageously greedy & sold the genuine products for
something like a sensible price they would not have to worry about clones. Models too. - John.

Cost has nothing to do with whether this is stealing or not. When you take someone else's work, copy it, and sell it as your own, you're stealing. Simple as that.

If people wouldn't buy the Von Dutch hat at $120, then they wouldn't be able to sell them for that amount.

So here's a scenario.....

Let's say I buy a kit from a manufacturer; I love the plane but am not too thrilled with the quality of their glass work so I use the kit fuselage/wings/stabs as a set of plugs and lay up my own molds. Using the molds I made, I now make myself a new fuselage/wings/stabs which are now lighter and stronger and the plane flies great. A buddy likes it so much, that he wants to buy one so I make and SELL him a set of wings/fuselage/stabs.

Am I stealing from the original kit manufacturer? Would that be true only if it's a sport jet that the original manufacturer designed? What if it's an F-18 for instance? The original kit manufacturer didn't design the plane, they only scaled it down. I simply used the kit as a plug.

Yes.. it is. You used THEIR effort (the original kit) to create your plug.

I would only consider it stealing if you put the kit in production and begain to compete with the
original kit manufacturer, However I think that would beyond the ability of most modelers in
a cost effective way.

I would have to agree with that & I think that's the case, the price for this stuff is so OTT that I would say that 99% of the Von Dutch clothing you see on the streets in Oz is non genuine and they are not selling any genuine, not making any money and have pulled out of the market. I don't think anyone is going to buy a chinese baseball cap for $120 regardless of who's logo is on it.
Yes, the cloning is stealing, as opposed to being robbed by the price of the genuine article.

A friend has recently bought a genuine BVM Bandit ARF & while it's good it could be better IMO. Still, he thought it was good value & is happy with it so in the end that's all that matters. - John.

Well Doug,

I have graphics guys stealing my art all the time. Couple even purchased graphics to have the stuff in hand. My Mulligan, and my Gee Bee stuff for sure.

How do you stop it or prove it? Waste of time also.

Guy has building talent though.

This happens all the time. Even among the big names.

The cost is in the plug, the original master pattern. Time, talent, (not saying I have any), time, time.

Once a composite model is sold, the design is out! The composite (good) fabricators can make anything really. Is it right? Is it right to do it for yourself? Should one buy every little thing for their hobby if they can make it?

Nope, part of the hobby is making stuff for yourself.

That is one big reason I/we don't sell our composite models. Plus, I/we don't do it for money, just the challenge and fun.

Rule was, 10% change in design is new design.
.
My current project off scale drawings. Lots of labor involved.

The $120.00 hat example. What can go wrong with a hat?

Perfect example of human nature. Everybody want to save money. Well, everybody that wants to have some reserves.
