Late breaking sad news as what is going on in our hobby at at AK Interactive.


NEWS RELEASE:


RESPONSE TO THE CORPORATE MESSAGE FROM AK INTERACTIVE S.L..

October 11, 2013 at 10:03pm

· RESPONSE TO THE CORPORATE MESSAGE FROM AK INTERACTIVE S.L.

Mr. Mig Jimenez, Mr. Carlos Cuesta, Miss Elizabeth Wiese, Mr. Iain Hamilton and Mr. Rick Lawer want to inform all of their friends and associates who have been with us all these three years of “AK Interactive” the following:

- Mr. Mig Jimenez was the creator of “AK Interactive” along with Mr. Fernando Vallejo 3 years ago. From the very first moment Mr. Mig Jimenez and Mr. Fernando Vallejo agreed that the company “AK Interactive” belonged to both of them. Mr. Mig Jimenez just put his trust in his friend, Mr. Fernando Vallejo, since Mr. Mig Jimenez never came to be included in the legal documents and records of the company.

-Mr. Mig Jimenez was the creator of the entire image, logos, products, marketing and image of said company; however until last day October 9th , 2013, when Mr. Mig Jimenez was returning from a trip to Mexico for the promotion of the trademark, Mr. Mig Jimenez and Mr. Carlos Cuesta were fired without previous notice. Hence, Mr. Rick Lawler and Mr. Iain Hamilton left the company voluntarily at that moment in solidarity with Mr. Mig Jimenez and Mr. Carlos Cuesta.

- All quality control, development of ideas, books, DVDs and many others, were created by Mr. Mig Jimenez, as indicated in most products, such as the Book “FAQ 2”, leaving the distribution to his partner Mr. Fernando Vallejo. The relationship between Mr. Mig Jimenez and Mr. Fernando Vallejo has ended due to the breakage of the verbal covenant they both had from the beginning, resulting in the dismissal of Mr. Mig Jimenez in the face of an overall imbalanced situation.

- Only a week before the dismissal of Mr. Mig Jimenez, he, along with Mr. Fernando Vallejo wrote a contract in which it read that the magazine “The Weathering Magazine” was intellectual property of Mr. Mig Jimenez and that said magazine would become Mr. Mig Jimenez’s full property in case of his dismissal . To date, Mr. Fernando Vallejo hasn’t hand in any files, logo, web domains or servers relating to this magazine to Mr. Mig Jimenez, breaching said contract. Therefore, Mr. Mig Jimenez currently does not have any control or responsibility over the magazine nor over the subscribers or advertisers who, in any case, have paid their fees to “AK Interactive” not to Mr. Mig Jimenez.

- There are many other issues of legality that Mr. Mig Jimenez and Mr. Fernando Vallejo must solve. At the same time, Mr. Mig Jimenez is free to create or do anything he sees fit to continue his professional modeling career outside AK Interactive; creating new books, paintings , accessories or any other idea under the brand he wishes to, always respecting the existing contract; which he can make available to employees, suppliers or customers request.

Finally, it is our duty to notify that the Facebook account “AK INTERACTIVE FACEBOOK” was created exclusively by Miss Elizabeth Wiese who worked on it for three years selflessly with the sole aim of helping Mr. Fernando Vallejo and Mr. Mig Jimenez. As we all know, Miss Elizabeth Wiese used an “AK Interactive” account (eli@ak-interactive.com) authorized by Mr. Fernando Vallejo for all promotional work, helping countless times in sales care work, stands, as well as helping in promotion and customer service . As you all can see in the many photographs of “AK Interactive” albums on Facebook and the thousands of private messages she exchanged with many modelers.

-“AK Interactive”, since October 9th, 2013, has misappropriated of what Miss Elisabeth Wiese created from her own will and without any financial remuneration, which she rejected, for the sole interest in helping said company, grow .

All of us expose that “AK Interactive” under the direction of Mr. Fernando Vallejo, has acted in an improper way breaking all verbal agreements it had with Mr. Mig Jimenez just when the company “AK Interactive” had been consolidated internationally. This has led to a breakage in the trust, essential to continue with the existing collaboration to date.

It’s only up to you to judge what “AK Interactive” has done with Mr. Mig Jimenez. Thank you all for your friendship over the years and we ask you not measure up people’s success for how high up they get to reach, but by how high they bounce when they hit bottom .

So being quite vague in the future of AK interactive does this quite possibly mean that AK may or may not be available in the neer future ? Just a question ....I have used ak and I do like the product and the fact that it is able to interact with other paint products with little or no issues. It would be a shame if the company up and folded ...I have seen it happen with so many other company's in the paint and refinishing fields kinda like Sherwin Williams ...and ppg now called 2nd dimention ...but non the less not the product they used to be

I don't think you have to worry about product in the short term you just won't see anything new. It probably will go through the courts and that will take a couple of years. If it looks like the company will loose big time they will bankrupt it. In the meantime watch to see if Mr. Mig Jimenez, Mr. Carlos Cuesta, Miss Elizabeth Wiese, Mr. Iain Hamilton and Mr. Rick Lawer start a new company...

Guys.
Generally I have enough AK product to keep our club going for a little bit so that should not be a problem.
(Glen rust effects at the battle Day )
I have sent mails off to Europe and plan to bring more AK Interatcive in. 
I can tell you AK Interactive was manufactured by Vallejo and I highly doubt Vallejo will drop the AK Brand, For now all existing AK product won't have any change to it ( there was lots of inventory that would need to be dealt with ) IF there are changes in the future I doubt they will happen for at least a couple months.
Politics be damned, I like this stuff and I am sticking with it.

It just realy sucks because I'm shure we have all seen other business have this happen and usually ends up going south due to after the lawyers eating up all the remaining money left to run the company ...even well established company's have hard time when this happens . Take my company I work for we almost went up in dust January 2004 due to a risky engine development called the mercury verado ...the whole business almost folded ...and is still recovering even though we bet and won

that sucks bigtime.  I was hoping to get a bottle of NATO filter. taht is probably going to be delayed/cancelled due to this.

hopefully the product is kept in production. 

my father was in business and he always said that partnerships usually fail. always told me that if i was to go into business, that it should not be a partnership.

Yes that is the guy, mig is a great modeller but not so good at business. I may carry the product but he will need to have a stable platform first, this last go around was his third kick at the cat.

he keeps making the mistake of going into business with a partner. my dad was an accountant, and he always said most partnerships in small business in in failure. you end up with warring personalities/egos and something always gives.

I see from the link above that he has hit the ground running. he obviously took the Web designer and/or graphic designer with him.  the website is very similar, as are all the logos, to the AK interactive counterparts.  that jive's with Mig's story that the partner sort of co-opted everything, and locked a lot of people out.

the russian camo paint sets are especially interesting....
