    He even admits that it is a Fiddlers Green model and copyrighted...but claims that it is a discontinued model.

    Well, I just checked at FG (0615 GMT, 30 Aug 2008) and the Cub is still there and remains a free download. What say we all send him a nastygram at his ebay site?

    Are you sure he didn't buy a printed version from like PMI at some point and is selling his printed kit? Remember FG models are available pre-printed, not just digitally...

    Dan could well be right. The guy isn't selling other paper kits and doesn't look like a pirate judging from his other auctions. Not everybody selling paper kits is a pirate.

    Thanks for the extra viewpoint - it is certainly a valid consideration :)

    Well, I just put this up here because I wasnt sure. I am a patron of Fiddler's Green and I have purchased most of their CDs, and I didnt think it was legit. If it is, my appologies for posting it...

    The proper thing to do is inform Chip Fyn at Fiddler's Green as it is his copyright to protect. Ebay will do absolutely nothing with your complaints if you are not the copyright holder.
