WMaquetes custom experience
 
I wanted to know if anyone has used WMaquetes for custom model orders.

I requested an order and submitted the donor models in August, and havenot heard or seen anything from WMaquetes. :mad:

However, I have noticed on the forums that he has posted a few custom models recently.

So I am wondering if I have wasted my time (and models) by dealing with WMaquetes or not.

Anyone else have this occur?

Hi

The owner of Wmaquetes had a serious healthy issue a few months ago and is still recovering from it. As he is my contry mate and if you want, I can drop a line to him on your behalf. Just PM me with the details.

Guys from what I know also, Fernando is having some health problems and isnt in a good way...
Be understanding of the circumstances.

AnonCollector 12-10-2009 06:13 PM

Re: WMaquetes custom experience
 
I'm very sorry to hear that. I've never done business with him, but he seems like a wonderful person.

It sounded like he had a bad health problem before, and got better this summer.

I feel bad he's ill again. I wish him well.

B-16707 12-10-2009 06:46 PM

Re: WMaquetes custom experience
 
wait patiently for his return! i hope he gets well soon, not for the sake of my models but for his own sake and we miss him!

SuriProf4 12-11-2009 12:16 PM

Re: WMaquetes custom experience
 
Yes, hopefully his health improve. That is what is important.

Hi,

Yes, my health is not good and now I was contacted to suspension my production for not licensed reasons.....Why??!!??

For some reason, my work was a target of the envy of some unfortunate person who woke the wrath of the great manufacturers and caused the suspension of my production under penalty of answering judicially because of not having license of production.
This is very sad because never I thought in being a rich man with this work, I hardly like a great deal of miniatures and my works please some persons who do small orders.
I wait to be a short problem and of quick solution, but at the moment I am prohibited to produce any model.


Two options remain: to wait for new date of delivery or to ask for the devolution of the paid value/donor models.

I thank his understanding, I'm a trustworthy person that only wants to work!!!

I canīt believe this is happening !!! :sad: What kind of competition you can do to the major manufactures? None. While their production run is in the thousands your production may be only a handful of models. It is a great shame someone did it to you because youīre a great guy, very talent and this act is an absurd. You donīt deserve that !!!

I do think the ones that had contact you reconsider their decision and leave you in peace while youīre still recovering from a healthy issue.

Re: WMaquetes custom experience
 
i still dont get all of this. this makes no sense. this means that everyone building models for profit (wont name names but some are obvious here) are to be shut down. we cant build models for other people for profit. this makes absolutely no sense whatsoever!

WMaquetes is operating on a hobby basis only right? he shouldnt be shut down like this!!! and rightly so because he isnt even like Hogan or Risesoon or Gemini Jets either!

people who should be shut down are those who pirate models like JC Models and all the names that come out of that manufacturer!

My friend, first of all I wish you a complete and a speedy recovery.

Second, as this problem affect us, the collectors, why donīt you tell us who is doing this stupid thing to you. Of course if you want to keep it quiet it is up to you but if we all know we can send thousands of e-mails to the manufacturer asking them to lift the ban.

Crossing fingers in the end everything will be all right. and as a side note if the manufactures could see your job I am sure insted of fighting with you they would join forces to wmaquetes because your job is amazing.

This isnot right. If someone has to be stopped, then you have to stop all. But this sounds like a personal thing against Fernando. Very unfortunate.

But I donot see how repainting a model (which was my order) violate any licensing.

It's quite ridiculous the threats that go on in this hobby.

1. Only the laws of Brazil apply.
2. They are customs, they are NOT mass produced models, therefore do not fall into licensing justisticions. It's like saying you can't make a drawing of a United Airlines 777 for say a few pieces and sell it..just look at Bader...the Philippines wood manufactuers... etc etc...
3. No one should be bullied in this hobby and told how to run their business, even though it happens on a weekly basis.

Continue to make your models and just ignore the threats and bullies of this hobby!

Thanks!!!! Exactly!!! This is my opinion too and I used these words to explain my situation.
Now this question is ok and I can return to my job. The custom work never will be down to me, I really love to do it, I am a colletctor too and I am not a rich men, I work alone and do very closest collections, not a serial production in large scale.

At this time I need to return to my job and clean my name and WMaquetes name, finishing all delayed orders and reset my business.

A new WMaquetes is coming much more better!

Regards.

what kind of person would have a problem with a small artist making a small number of models, just because he loves to do this work? That is ridiculous. I think a mass-production company like Gemini and AeroClassics should have licenses, but leave this man alone to do his hobby!

I hope you can continue now, as if this never happened. And I hope your health improves; that is most important.

Reading this thread, I'm fairly sure this guy bit off more than he could chew. He's probably swamped, and since this is a hobby for him, he's unable to make enough time to clear his orders. That's what it seems like to me, anyway.

Haven't got any reply from him, too.. My order was placed well over one year ago, too.. I recieved some pictures of my unfinished ordered models in spring this year, then after tons of emails i was told that they were shipped to my address.. Then i got a weird story that they were damaged in a strom and that he'll have to start all over again! :rolleyes:

I really hope that i'll get the items i payed for one day.. :( My belief is shrinking though... :sad:

I would say that is 100% correct.

I have also seen fotos of some of my models from the spring. Then I receive emails that I would receive soon. Six months later, nothing. The last notification of any sort from him was a promo video he posted a few weeks ago.
