I believe these are upgrades of the old Gulfstream (Commander) series models that Ted Paris made the masters for back in the early 1990's. I have both (the older versions), and they are excellent models; highly detailed.

That was my understanding; YKM acquired the molds. I believe it was about 8 months ago or so...
