Hallmark has announced that the Lockheed Vega will be their 2016 "Keepsake Ornament". It's the red one that Amelia Earhart flew, just like most Vega toys/models. The only other version has been the Winnie Mae, which Hallmark hasn't done in their series. With all the different choices for this famous airplane but...
I expect the scale will be in the 1/120 range.
If it looks familiar, it should. Corgi release a beautiful Vega as part of their "Century of Flight" series. It is also out of scale and was included in ALL those issues at the time. If you've forgotten, that was 2003.
Hallmark has also done the Vega before, this time in their "Heritage" series from the late '90s, this time in 1/72. It's a lovely piece any way you slice it.
I think the last time I saw the Winnie Mae as a "toy" was in the Cox/AHM "Showcase Miniature" series, but that issue is a whole 'nother kettle of fish from the Hallmark plane from 35 years later!
We should expect a second Hallmark plane sometime in October...this is the "surprise" issue. Last year it was a very nice P-38 that turned out to be very popular and hard to find!
