Description: Horizontal Image: pre-Damon Era Astron Streak from early 60's; I believe this kit variety was only produced in 1963. White facecard/instruction sheet with simple side and front view rocket drawings and "Assembly Instructions" label. Face card is the front of the instruction sheet and lacks printed pricing and kit number. Pricing is manually printed on facecard/instruction sheet. Kit features included mylar body tube, balsa nose cone, balsa pieces for fins, launch lug, and instructions.

Note that the 1963 catalog only referenced the 1/4A8-2 engine for normal flying and no other recommended engines are listed but indicates the Streak is capable of altitudes up to 2000 feet.
