Skill Level Facecard Guide
Estes marketed this V-2 kit as "1/49th scale" within 1975 through 1977 catalogs while the facecard indicates the kit is 'semi-scale". Catalog kit numbering is #1222 while the Version 1 facecard still lists the dual K-22/#1222 designation.
Kit Contents: The kit contains a main body tube, a balsa nose cone, a balsa tail cone, one nose cone weight, one sheet balsa fin stock, 18mm engine mount, 12" plastic parachute, three launch lugs, and instructions.
Availability: The later skill level V-2 kits are rated as moderately scarce and will appear on eBay occasionally. When located, be prepared to pay about $100 for a nice problem free example.
