Re: Leon Parker's rewooding plans

To all of you who have written such nice things about Leon and Mel, both of them had the best interests in preserving the plans that keep your hobby growing. How Leon came into having the plans I don't remember, but from that day on, he worked, and studied, and made them as accurate as he possibly c...

Re: Leon Parker's rewooding plans

I have not seen all of the plan sets but the ones I have seen all have a copyright by Mel Miller on them. However, Leon’s daughter has stated that Leon altered Mel’s plans to correct some errors and add additional information. That seems to have taken place many years ago as Leon had been selling t...

Re: Leon Parker's rewooding plans

How could Leon legally sell them if they are Mel’s with modifications? Because Mel Miller did not own the plans. He did drawings on them, but they belonged to Ford Motor Company, This Mel Miller has been going on for years. A copyright of your product has to be renewed every 10 years ...your produc...

Re: Leon Parker's rewooding plans/Mel Miller

Mel Miller did not own any copyright to the ford plans Leon has been doing since the1990's. Ford owned the copyrights. When Leon started drawing them, so much of what Leon added on to his plans were things he researched over the years. After Mr. Miller died, his daughter tried to take it over but sh...

Re: Leon Parker's rewooding plans

I have been trying to put together all of Leon's rewooding plans. It has proved to be too much for me. I wanted to put them all together by year and plate number, but he has them all over the place. I have been working steadily on them for 3 weeks and I finally hit the wall last week. I have talked ...

Re: Leon Parker's rewooding plans

Thank you Scott. We were in the process of trying to put them in order when Leon's cancer just went crazy. He was told in May there was nothing more she could do for him, and then proceeded to give him 3 extremely high doses of chemo. He lot his hair within 2 weeks and by the end of June, he had to ...

Leon Parker's rewooding plans

I am refiling all of the plans my husband, Leon Parker has done over the years. He died on Sept. 22 and I am in the process of putting them all in order, by year, plate number and hopefully will be done shortly. I would like to sell all the prints at one time (about 230) pages, so whoever would buy ...
