Espona Models

Recommended Posts

I bought the set maybe 20 years ago and the company seems to have disappeared . Do you think I will be allowed to include any models in tutorials I intend to sell ?

Tricky. Try tracking down the owner. If company has no legal inheritor then I guess that is in public domain...

    But even if that company disappeared, there still might be copyright?

     

    Possible that the Espona models became part of a very large collection of old models from "Digimation"

    Here is a review of that ancient collection  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RES7F33GtRQ

    That's a blast from the past - I remember buying and using a few Espona models myself a long time ago. At the time the aircraft models were some of the best you could buy.
    I'd have to disagree with Hrvoje on this - just because a company closes does not mean it's assets become public domain. It's more than likely those models (company assets) would have been sold before Espona ceased trading  - so they are very likely still under copyright, just with a new owner. ZChristian's suggestion of Digimation looks likely - I think I can see an ex Espona model in that video review that I once used! It may still be in my model collection somewhere!
