Question for FSS Modelers

Post by Tachyon » Wed Feb 15, 2006 3:39 am

This question is for those of you who are FSS modelers and active visitors of FSS modeler Web sites.

I copied the 3 images above from a Web site. I want to make a profile page for the Horned Mirage and I was hoping I could use these 3 model photos to let fans know how the Horned Mirage is painted. Could I get away with posting these photos? Or would I be getting Gears Online in a lot of trouble? I want to credit the model builder but I don't know his name.

Please reply!

The worst that could possibly happen is that the original model builder would ask you to take them down. Posting those pictures is FAR less dangerous than posting scans of the FSS pages from Newtype magazine.

I was thinking I could get away with it as long as I post the model builder's name. I hope someone here knows it.

If you can't find a name for the modeler , just post a link or the address of the site you got them from . Most modelers post their work to showcase it and the person may be very proud that you want to put it in our FSS section . As Cobywan said , at worst they'll ask you to take the images down .
Do you understand?

forgotten that it's already there :P
look under My Models folder...

well it's a bit slanted cos it's an average quality recast.
also did a pretty bad job on the horn part, no experience in painting skin tones
and the lighting from just 2 table incandescent lamps + ceiling lamp doesn't help much to bring out the colors either :(

what scale is the water dragon? And which Cross Mirage is it?
If you buy a pet from pet stores , you are encouraging those breeders to breed more. This is the condition that they lives in:

I believe the Water Dragon is the SSS kit, if I remember properly.

And the Cross Mirage is a modified recast of the SSS version. New weapon, and arms are reposed/redone a little.

correct on both counts.
all kits except the Junchoon (Volks MM) are recasts.
haven't really got down to building other originals yet......
