Love that fire engine thing ! Says Roco 1:87 those are HO scale models no ?

 :wub:

They certainly are, yes.

You should at least get royalties.

I'd complain to E-Bay about them using your photo.

I will choose a path that's clear, I will choose free will.

They're making copies of your models and selling them??  :banghead: (or better, offering to make them if a buyer is found)
BTW, I have seen already since a few years philippine sellers of wood models made to order.
What make me suspicious is that the delivery time is OVER 2 months, while the delay for asking an ebay refund, if I am not wrong, is 2 months.  :rolleyes:
Owing to the current financial difficulties, the light at the end of the tunnel will be turned off until further notice.

I already checked options. Sad thing is (as with any large online platform) that you can only file a complain through a standardized process, and ebay does not care for the sources of a seller's picture material. If it's "stolen" from another ebay offer, then you can intervene. But if the seller uses 3rd party material like mine, ebay stays away and tells you to contact either the owner of the original artwork and/or settle it with the seller. Full support of public order ('sarcasm off*).

Anyway, I contacted the seller and set up a deadline, before I take official measures.

Had a similar case on ebay some time ago with looted pics from an anime figure of mine, a customized stock PVC figure/statue. This case is new. While I do not mind a large scale wooden copy of my creation, it's about the abuse of the picture material - without asking. Royalties would be approriate, though.

I'm still tickled pink by the listings with a photograph of a box of a sought after model with what appears to be a bargain price. People jump on them only to find that's it...the box. REALLY learn to read the small print 'cos it is there ;D

I've been caught.  Nearly.
I've bid before realising and then withdrawn.

From the ebay case: seller did not react upon my request to stop using the picture at all (what else to expect?), so I've filed a copyright infringement alert to ebay. I have little hopes that anything happens, but now I pull the thing through.  :police:

Paws. You could train chimps to do it.

In fact that's good idea.  PSR monkey anyone?
