Description: The Estes Astron Streak Flying Model Rocket Kit #K-4/1204 was produced from the early to mid 1980's with yellow skill level facecard and black paper hang tag. Note that the Streak's facecard graphic does not match with the Streak's illustration in the 1980-1987 catalogs. The catalogs show a Streak rocket with black rings at the aft and top fin points while Estes was still using an older skill level facecard design.
