I bought this kit from Tom Parker who originally purchased it at the Playing Mantis Annual Warehouse Sale 2000. According to Tom, Lisa Greco (the Playing Mantis Consumer Services Manager at the time) told him Model Kit #0-006 was the lowest number available to the public for sale. The first five numbered kits were distributed to people involved with the production as listed below:
