Hello all

I am extremely angry

This person flavio is building all Frank meagher and now bertie fisher models

This is not acceptable as he is totally devaluing collectors personal collection's

These cars were made by kmd models and should not be copied by anyone

Thoughts please.....

Some of his stuff is not great but look at the shite that clown from Spain is producing with his shitty decals. I've just seen his Fisher models on FB and everyone has been made by other people: Many are from decals by Carlo. The Fisher Sierra is well known and I have one. The MK II escort is KMD's I think!

I think anyone who understands the difference in quality between these and KMDs is going to know which one is better.
Anyone who doesnt understand the quality difference is not the target market when selling KMDs anyway for the premium they command.

Releasing models again is often the only way new people can get into the hobby, start building a collection and form a long ladting interest. Without those new people, the hobby dies.

well i must hold my hands up and admit to having made several fisher, meagher, etc etc models, all for my own collection, so im not one bit remorseful about that to be honest, no offence intended... i have a couple of kmd models also for which I paid the asking price, so i dont feel i'm breaking any 'code' or even unwritten gentlemens agreement...
kevins models are excellent and professionally made, but they are limited and expensive... not sure younger collectors coming into the hobby may be able or willing to splash out such premiums.. but it takes all sorts guys, and after all its a hobby and supposed to be enjoyable.... horses for courses...
now i freely admit to not knowing the course of action, if one is even available, against someone making models that have been made previously by another... i wouldnt even think about it either, there are many more important things in my life to be honest...

Only issue I can see is if there have been licencing issues broken. Surely its a free market otherwise and if the models in question arent available elsewhere and there is a demand can see why someone would try and cash in.

Didnt see anyone kicking off re the Sunstar Fisher Escort other than that it was very poor quality for the money
