Still around!  Now, in addition to their usual offerings, they have very
expensive "collectible" higher detail models.
Neil Young bought a big hunk of the company, and also created "Lion-Tech"
which is involved with fancier control systems, realistic sound effects,
etc.  (they used to (15 years ago) sublet a chunk of my office space for
their testing layout!)
