If you modify another person's creation and publish it, should you give partial credit to the original maker? Answered

I decided to create a pistol that was different than, but somewhat similar to the el diablo assault pistol. It was smaller & had a different reloading mechanism. Should I give partial credit to whoever originally made the el diablo pistol?

Someone will see what you did and will remember the previous item, no matter how much you think no one else would ever find it. If you give credit to the one on whose work yours is based, you will appear honest and gracious. If you do not give credit, you will appear to have no integrity. The one who found you out may even denounce you publicly. It is your choice, but there are consequences.

It would help if you gave us a pic of the gun. If you intended it to be based off el diablo, then give him credit for the concept.

If you based it off the El Diablo, then yes you should give credit to Viccie B. 1993, but if you didn't base it off the El Diablo, unless it looks really similar, I wouldn't worry about giving credit.
