  1. So you don't believe what is being said by ex staff, who were part of that inner circle once. All of us have said its gone. There are possibilities that some in-development projects could be released under someone else like the Dr.1's with Meng, but I wouldn't be holding my breath for everything.
  2. Much as I respect you @Radub, your unfortunately off track with this case. WNW is dead... If you want to believe the COVID Statement, be my guest! You seem to think you know what is going on, but there is more to this ruse. Wingnut Wings is dead it will not be restarted. Yes its still operating company which declares their taxes, but they will not restart it even with a sole manager reissuing the kits that have been produced. The Owners do not want to spend any more money on this project. Trust me I know, why do you think I jump ship prior to this happening? I had some knowledge an
  3. Its not a scale up of the 32nd kit. They would only have access to what they have been given. Yes they would keep them on file for updates to tooling etc. No Meng was only one of the many tooling companies that WNW used.
  4. Thanks, I will check them and go to plan B if they are they are mismolded.
  5. What are the PCM wheels like? I have a set if those from a previous failure.
  6. I am thinking of doing a quick build of Fly's Hurricane for the BOB GB... I've watched Doogs Models build video, looks like I could be in for some work construction wise, but I would be interested to hear if there is any shape issues with the Fly Mk.I?
  7. As Bryan stated and I will state now.. Meng was one of the many factories contracted to do tooling for WNW. The Dr.1's was the latest kit they were tooling. That is the WNW tooling not Meng, Iv'e spoken to the designer (Darren) of the Dr.1 kit and that is his work. Also to note.... Meng were not doing the tooling on the Lancaster nor the HP's, these were with other factories.
  8. Fired and redundant are two different things. WNW Staff were not "Fired" they were made redundant. Weta Workshop, Weta Digital and Wingnut are related but they are ran as separate companies. Wingnut & TVAL is outright PJ, but the Weta's are owned by different people with PJ having a share. Nothing official is going to be stated from the company as they do not want bad press regarding a PJ company. This was posted on the WNW Fan Page on Facebook by another member and it sums it quite well - My thoughts on whats going on with the mixed messages on their webs
  9. I am not sure what people require to accept what is being said is the truth? A signed letter from PJ himself or a video message?? Richard has said things are grim. I have spoken to some of the team at WNW and I know what's going on. Yes, they are still going through a process, and It's not good news... Time to start accepting it and not be in denial.
  10. The attack on the original designer is unwarranted IMHO
  11. Sorry @Jennings Heilig you're full of S&#@! You don't know what you're talking about here... That person is one of my best friends as I got him in contact with Neil. Neil needed another designer and my friend was made redundant from his design role and had no income. Yes, he was doing the Freelance work here in NZ. I've seen the CAD work of the Fuselage he was doing, and it looked fantastic. Unfortunately, he wasn't able to survive on just doing the Phantom for HK and had to get another full-time job to pay bills and and keep his head above water. There was no darkness or lame
  12. Got a link to it? I couldn't find it on their website.
  13. Yes Thierry, you are correct it is different, but it does have a Shark Mouth. I just noticed that my first post is missing some text as I posted from my phone. I just edited my post to include what I thought I typed originally.
