The kits in question are what Hasegawa calls "Interval Production Kits"
They are released from time to time, and only a limited number of them are
sent to the importers. The distributors in tern get a limited number of
them, and on and on.

The price tag has gone up over the past few years and they are now in the
$800.00 to $1000.00 price range. Check the mail order houses. They often
list them at a discount when they are available.
