    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...

    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.

    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 excuses, and he happily handed over the files to HK when requested.
     
    It's not the first time I have seen you talk trash about this designer and this project. Shame on you as you do not know the full story and your not an Official Representative of HK Models, so you should no have the authority to make claims like that.
