But I think the pedigree and portfolio of WnW stands alone, on its own merits without the yet to be produced kits. It just seems odd to me that everything has been “stopped”, without efforts at liquidation. That implies there’s more afoot here than we see, and my belief is either it’s already been decided, or there’s a legal issue to overcome, or, there’s just plain lack of competence (or knowledge) at some level of management.
It reminds me a bit of the demise of Classic Airframes, which was also abrupt and accompanied by anger on the part of the owner. You will also recall that some of the last kits were quite exotic Italian aircraft, IIRR.
I suspect that the Jackson empire is in deep deep trouble financially so that he just shut down all the "hobby" businesses to stop the bleeding. One hopes he's not so bitter that he destroys everything, including the molds. Surely they are worth something to a business like CSM.
