    Dave J got a reaction from LSP_Matt in 1/32 Fokker Dr.I from Meng   
    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.

    The silence speaks volumes.  Surely they are plugged into the modeling forums.....    If there was any hint of faults info one would speak up. That's just common sense.  Nobody is speaking up............. and the article makes sense.

    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 website announcements
    Fact: Staff have been made redundant WNW as we (the modellers) know it is gone.
    Opinion: Peter Jackson and whoever else owns the entity doesn't want it to go broke to the point of receivers or liquidators. Why? that damages the PJ brand (forget WNW hardly anyone knows what that is or who owns it). A PJ company in liquidation would be news picked up by the press and reflects poorly on him personally. So they stop the rot by letting staff go, keep the website up, halt sales, and hope to sell to an investor as a going concern which avoids the negative press and no ones the wiser. Just that the pool of investors for a model-making company (that was obviously losing money) ain't that big. Good luck I guess.
     
     
    I am not sure where he is hearing that from.. All staff have been redundant.. Yes they may open the web store again for sales, but I don't know who is going to be doing the fulfillment of orders as that person is gone. Who ever it will be, will be an outsider that knows nothing about the company, where the stock is located and how the order systems work etc...
