Nothing more iconic than the Airstream logo

There is Nothing more iconic than the Airstream logo and all you can fins today are poorly made so rather than just complain about it I decided to do something about it.

first picture is from the 1940's logo

Was so fun to do. I can polish them or make the vintage looking just like the original...

Count me in. I can mount it where the Airstream name was supposed to be above the window on the rear of our new 2015 23D.

rmkrum no these are just like the originals from 1947/48 cast in solid bronze.

I should pre warn you guys these will run around 200 bucks each. making small batch runs are expensive to do and also the time to polish them adds to cost.

Our AS's insignias look pretty good, but not as classy as yours!!! Would love to buy a set for our Excella if you decide to make a few more...
Regards,
James and Rebecca
