Not known yet.  The ones that have been cancelled usually had less than 5 reservations.  There are also potentially versions that will be done that are not even advertised.  If a hobby shop or a person wants a version done just for them and reserves the minimum required that version will be done and counts towards the 20.  Even versions of versions are not known and depends on versions people have reserved.  If there are 10 reservations for MP without dynamic brakes in X paint and every other version has less guess which one will be produced.  If only one version is advertised then it is reasonable that only one version will be built.  Usually people who have made specific preferences known will have the opportunity to back out, otherwise you get what is built.

You can still email Scott to reserve one that has been cancelled. There's an old saying "If it weren't for the last moment nothing would ever get done".  They sit for months with no additional reservations and when he announces reservations closing reservations magically show up.  And that certainly has been true here.  Cancelled ones have been revived and ones on the bubble cancelled in the past.  He tried with the GP7/9s to do everything and that did not turn out well, so the builder limited it at 20 versions per run from now on.  

As usual - good info on the behind scenes goings on. Thanks !!!

In my mind - it’s all about the numbers. Those with the most reservations will be produced. 5 of the 25 shown (and I guess the undecorated gets done no matter what) won’t get done (not counting canceled MKT). Late reservations Can restack the final 20. Time for the “fence sitters” to commit.
Perhaps we are close to a final roads to be produced “shuffle” prior to reservations closing.
