Licence Terms

Following a lengthy discussion on Smart Groups, it struck me as a bit daft that folks have to buy a digital product before they get to read the terms and conditions related to the product. 

So I decided to post the licence terms and conditions bound to my models so that you can see before you buy what your hard earned cash will buy you (and what it does not buy you).

Here follows the copyright and fair use policy of Wings of Horus kits.

"Dear Customer

Plainly speaking,

Every effort has been made to bring you a quality product.

You may print copies of this model for friends, but you may not give them the electronic file.  You may not charge a fee.

You may not decompile or redistribute this kit in any other form.

You may print a "reasonable" number for a friend, or relative.

You may build as many replicas of the WINGS OF HORUS MODEL KIT as you wish for personal use.



WINGS OF HORUS PAPER WARBIRDS (Hereafter WOH) grants you a single, non-exclusive license to use the WINGS OF HORUS MODEL KIT name / serial number; provided you agree to abide by the terms of this Agreement. Any number of users are authorized to use the WINGS OF HORUS MODEL KIT on one computer at a time (and not by more than one individual via a network). (Contact the author for pricing for Network / Educational licences:  Bulk discounts apply).

You acknowledge that you do not become the owner of the WINGS OF HORUS MODEL KIT (Model plans, template, software programs and/or documentation). You agree not to transfer, rent, lease, sub-license, reverse engineer, modify, translate, the WINGS OF HORUS MODEL KIT file. You may not share the file.  You may not place the file on any peer to peer network system, nor any other system extant or otherwise designed to disseminate electronic files.


  1. You may share or make gifts of "hard copy"  in limited quantities, provided that this and all other materials in the file remain unaltered, and that all parts of the document are provided.

  2. You may use the MODEL KIT as a basis for a derived work for personal use.

While we have attempted to ensure the reliability and accuracy of the WINGS OF HORUS MODEL KIT,  It is not possible to guarantee the models appearance under all circumstances, due to the differing skill levels of model makers, at all times, with all hardware and software and craft tool configurations , For more reliable colors and results, buy the ink and tools from the suppliers recommended in the MODEL.
There are NO WARRANTIES expressed or implied, including but not limited to, implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose, and all such warranties are expressly and specifically disclaimed.

WOH cannot assume any liability for damage that occurs because of ham fisted use of craft knives, or accidental injury with superglue, whether or not in accordance with the instructions or specifications. ie if you hack your finger off, it's your fault not that of WOH.It is your responsibility to ensure your safety while using the WINGS OF HORUS MODEL KIT. In no event shall WOH or its suppliers, if any, be responsible for any special, incidental or consequential damages whatsoever (including, without limitation, damages for lost profits, business interruption, loss of information, or any other loss, including limbs or portions thereof) arising out of the use or the inability to use this product, even if WOH has been advised of the possibility of such damage. "



OK I agree I do not agree



So in other words,

  • Question:  Can I print a copy for my nephew?

  • Answer:  Yeah sure, print two or three.

  • Question: Can I burn a CD and give a copy to my mate?

  • Answer: No, but get them to email me with your name and I'll give you both a discount on your next purchase.

  • Question:  Can I send my friend a copy by email?

  • Answer:  No (but I'll gladly send a model manually if you wish to purchase your friend a gift)

  • Question:  Can I sell copies of your model?

  • Answer:  Only if you are an appointed agent, for which you will earn a commission.

  • Question:  Can I print a copy for my nephew / son / friend?

  • Answer:  Yeah sure, print two or three, but you must print all the sheets every time.

  • Question:  Can I print a copy for my nephew/ son / friend / scout troop / history class?

  • Answer:  ask me for a quote.

  • Question:  Can I use your design as a basis for a new model?

  • Answer:  For personal use, you sure can.  You may scan the model, manipulate the model file directly or repaint it provided that the model is only for your use.  For commercial use, you must obtain permission and pay me royalties on each kit sold.

And just to make it absolutely clear.....

  • Question: May I upload a copy of your work that has taken you months of design time and share it with thousands of strangers who will not pay you a penny?

  • Answer: No of course not you idiot.  Sooner or later our technology will catch up with you, in which case we shall use every legal avenue to recover our lost sales revenues and sue your sorry butt into oblivion.
