The not so good news,

 

The price has jump significantly and they are the exact same colors they were done in before.  That I don't understand.  Change the colors and have a chance to sell one to a collector that may already have one of the lod ones, like me. I have everyone one of these.

Here is the 48 Chrysler in Cream.  Having dog leg hinges and very little detail underneath, I'm not sure they will sell that well at that price point.

It is a vintage Airstream. Here's a photo of mine when I was out camping, Girl not included, I had to bring my own :P

Originally they made a new version and a weathered version. I am not sure what the new one will be.

Is it new product or have they found a batch of previous production?

As indicated in the first post, they are reissuing a few of the models from several years ago. They will be the same color as before and should be available by late summer. 

 

I sent feedback to them that they need to change the colors (excluding the camper)  if they have hope in selling these, we'll see how that goes.
