Again, it's unfortunate that in my efforts (our efforts) to be transparent with the creation, and show the progress and allow for changes in hopes of satisfying those interested, it only exposed the art to those here who see it as an opportunity to be exploited.

How very sad. It shuts so many doors. - R13

OK good.
R13 has cleared his name, Critter has stated his case clearly.
I apologise if I got the wrong end of the stick.

The listings for the knock off plates are down as of this mornng.

Hopefully we can all move on from this unfortunate event.

I'm moving on after that but R13, to clarify, the listing is in english and there was no way for me to know if you are from US or not which is why I posted that link to ask you guys/give you the information. we knew that Skin-Job was from UK so it's why we ASKED if it was you ebay acount or someone's that stole your idea.
cheers

I think it would be a good idea to post the seller's username or link to the auction or Etsy page as a warning to those tempted to buy from him. This is what they do in the RPF...

Looks like possibly the same seller as this one on Etsy.

He’s on the rpf also:

I think it's the same seller, but I can't see the Bladerunner VIN plates on either.

Can anyone spot them?

I'm 99% certain they were on the U.S. eBay site on Thursday or Friday, but now they are gone from there too.

eethan, et al -

So. Forgive my ignorance, but while the headline IS in English the text is a mix - hence my reluctance to click incorrectly to "reply".

And for the record, I updated my info to include USNA (North America).

• • •

Did a quick peruse, but I didn't see the plaque on the two BROTHERFOSTER listings either.

I guess what you are saying is that I sent the link to ebay.be as I saw it because I'm in Belgium. but those auctions are worldwide.
Anyway, all is well now I think as the guys has apologised and removed the listing.
cheers guys

so, the guy made his new version. Not as exiting as Replicant13

https://www.ebay.com/itm/CUSTOM-BLADE-RUNNER-PKD-2019-BLASTER-PROPERTY-TAG-PROP-DETECTIVE-SPECIAL-SILVER/263520267380?hash=item3d5b082c74:g:COMAAOSwn-NalJlk

the funny part for me being that he calls the gun a PKD19, likely because it was in 2019, but he says it was issued in 2015, so maybe that would make that gun a PDK15 model, no? anyways

Thank you for your comment. Nice to know my original is preferred. Wink

It seems that, while not a direct copy, he certainly used the key elements that I came up with, spelling out and then adding a couple more.

A rose by a different name, but still a rose. I guess I will take he efforts as a compliment and leave it at that. - R13

yes, clearly it's the work of someone that has a model and is trying to do something that's not going to be said as similar. so he changed EVERYTHING to make sure no one could say he copied, and he put all the logos that were not on the original in the same purpose.

but yeah, I think, take that as a compliment. The guy accepted to remove the copy from sale and made a new one inspired by your work.
cheers

Yes, the fact that he was willing to make that effort is more than I expected.

An exception to the rule these days. - R13

Just got the strong brass lid chain in for the replacement chains for the MK1 boxes.
I have four people on the list for replacement chains.
These will go out Monday.

I have enough chain for everyone on the MK1 box run. Just let me know if you need one and I'll send it out.
If I don't hear from you, I'll assume your chain was OK.

OK, I've had a message that the replacement chain I sent is too short.

I tested the length on the prototype box and it was fine. But, the boxes are ahnd made and there are variations.

I should point out that the chain doesn't have to fix to the same screw hole in the lid, as it's covered by the foam liner insert.

If anyone else wants a longer chain then let me know.

Two people have been in touch from the MK1 box run.

It seems that the glue that sticks the leatherette to the foam isn't holding perfectly.
I've been in touch with the manufacturer, who recommended this product to me. I had asked for the correct adhesive for this vinyl/leatherette combination.

They said this may happen in a few cases. I suggested they put it into the product information.

If you find you're having this issue, there's a fix.
Remove the foam layer form the box, gently peel apart the leatherette and foam, let them air dy for a day or two, then apply a solvent based glue such as Evo-Stik or Thixofix to both surfaces, let it dry and press carefully together.

This should hold it fine.

I know this doesn't apply to all the boxes in the run, as the two sample pieces I made using the same foam and vinyl are still both fine, so it seems to be random.

Apologies for this. In did the initial research and used the 'correct' adhesive....
