>Hypothetically speaking, if we can get a crew to L2
You do realize that no human has ventured further from Earth than the dark side of the moon, right? To get a crew to L2, NASA and whoever else would have to devise a completely new space travel strategy, with new travel tech capable of supporting a crew that far from Earth. This means an additional mission that could end up costing more than the telescope itself. If JWST fails in L2, the very idea of a repair crew is out of the realm of our budget, both financially and time-wise

Yes, the models are obviously still out there, but it's expensive to manufacture the specialised parts.

Think about it like this as well, if they used a single part that has to change (due to a manucturing company dying etc.) they will usually have to change the entire design.
