    Re: New Metal Nose Badges

    The problem for the club is that we're almost 100% "replicas" (Guy can prob tell us how many genuine cars). It could be easily argued that it's pretty obvious where these badges would end up, whether we sell them as a display item or not, and therefore as a club we'd be condoning the passing-off of those cars with them attached, and could be accused of being complicit in an illegal activity. So having consulted the committee, I think we have to give them a miss, in order to uphold the good(?) name of the club and not bring us into disrepute.

    If, however, an individual wanted to have a batch made and sell them privately, then he'd have no real idea or control over how they'd be used or where they'd end up, so could legitimately claim to be selling them for use on various Lancia vehicles or as display items. So if you've got 600 spare and fancy giving it a go, you'd probably sell the lot in short order....

    But here's a thought. I had an idea whereby you could have the Lancia badges front and rear, but with a small vinyl sticker underneath that says "homage by ListerBell" or "....Hawk". That way there'd be absolutely no question of trying to pull the wool and anybody seeing it would know it wasn't a genuine car. It'd also have the bonus of giving the kit manufacturers a mention, and letting the world know whose vision and determination had enabled such fantastic cars to be created. What do we think? I might give it a go on mine.

    I explained that the badge needed the correct 'levels', as in, not flat. I also explained that the ring is the furthest to the back, and the flagstaff is further forward etc.
    I asked for an example of an existing badge that could show similar detail and finish.
    Here it is:

    Looks a bit like some creative photo-shopping to me - with shadows in all directions. However if the badge is a reasonable representation of what can be achieved looks quite good - but as Norm says probably best not a Club purchase, but if someone want to have a punt, I'd buy one .

    As I said earlier ('see above) that's as far as it goes for my involvement.

    No, it's a real badge Peter.
    You can see the photographer's face in the chrome on the left side.
    It's their own logo.

    It's alright Chris - I dont think anyone was expecting you to move it forward. I suspect this is as far as it goes as no-one - I'm assuming - will want to stump up the 600 or whatever, to buy a batch

    Well that's a bit daft, Leigh, innit. We all know how much you like shiny things, so if no-one else bought them....you would!!

    Great idea. I'll buy them and then sell them all to myself to get the money back!
