Still showing in stock at Tower Hobbies and Model Roundup.   Given that this was an Italeri rebox, it was probably a limited run?

You should see all the discontinued kit Round2 has , Look on https://stevenshobby.com/productlisting.aspx?supplierid=5096&categoryid=1 look for a "D"  behind the name .

This is actually a good sign if you're a fan of the idea of these Italeri reboxes. That means Round2 moved the entire run (out of their inventory) in less than 90 days.

The fact remains truck modellers are a minority. It will most likely be limited run reissues as it has been for quite a while now. Moebius released a few new items, and I am looking forward to the flatbed trailer later in the year.  I doubt we will see many new tools in the future, especially from AMT. Even italeri hasn’t released something new in 2020 for truck modellers. It’s all reissues. Hopefully we see something new and popular such as a kenworth, Peterbilt or Mack from a major manufacturer.

My guess is that they bought X number of kits from Italeri per the contract that they had to see how well these are accepted in the marketplace.  So once those are gone, they're gone., until Italeri releases them again on their own.
