Why are there so many original 1970s models for sale on eBay but no new 1990s models? TIA...

Under the Model Database tab for New Models is a picture listing the new models produced ranked by quantity produced but no actual numbers are available to my knowledge. ( http://aeromini.com/exhibition/new-models/)

Good question. Theory 1) It is largely a numbers game. Some 400,000 original AeroMinis were made. The New Aero Mini company has released VERY few models by comparison. Each is hand painted in the USA and there just not that many out there.
Theory 2)Owners of the original models purchased back in the 70s are dying off and their kids list their AeroMinis on EBay whereas purchasers of the new AeroMinis in the 90s are still kicking! :)
