Made up names for fan art models?

Postby Gerardo » June 16th, 2015, 8:40 pm

Hey guys,

I'm writing an article about model names. One issue I wanna discuss is how in some magazines and convention books models of trademarked characters and other elements (fan art) have totally made up names. Know what I mean? Can you please help me with a couple of examples to add to the article? It's important for me to also know where were the diagrams published, the publishing date, and the pages were the diagrams begin and end. OK?

Thanks in advance!

This is the one that first came to my mind:

Page 85: Cross-Wing Quad Engine Fighter AKA "X-wing fighter". I laughed my *** off at this made up name.

First that came to mind: Spendjurmunni by Robert Lang. The name actually stands for «spend your money» :lol:

Great example roodborst :). I know The Yellow Bird is in a Tanteidan Convention Book. Does someone know in which one and between what pages?
