I have been having one of my periodic clean ups and organizational sort outs.

As part of that I have been sorting old instructions, mainly for Faller kits: some old some new, into plastic sleeves in a ring binder and it occurred to me that they should be shared so I am contemplating scanning what I have and creating a website to post them on. This would be a completely free access resource for fellow enthusiasts.

Just before I do it I just want to make sure that there is not already such an archive out there so I don't duplicate it and if there would be any interest in such a site.

thanks 7 users liked this useful post by nzr1

Hello Pete,

There are one or two archives with Faller instruction sheets but they are 'private'.

If you want to make your instructions sheets available online, make sure you have permission from Faller otherwise you will sooner or later receive a nasty letter from one of Fallers lawyers due to copyright infringement.

Curious as to why Faller would make this a copyright issue as the instruction only help build the kits that they sell.
I am under the impression if one has a film or video with a Faller building in it, their would be a CC license to use it under "Fair Use" in the overall narrative.

Have read elsewhere that Prierserlings are CC
Anyone have any ideas or insight about this topic? (Guess this deviates and warrants another thread if there is not one already.)
