Hang Tag (Header Card) Guide

Kit Contents: The kit contains a body tube, plastic nose cone, die cut balsa sheets, 18 mm engine mount, decal sheet, launch lug and instruction sheet.

Availability: I consider this kit to be quite scarce and probably rare based on a small number of eBay appearances. However, there are no unique features for this kit that would make it a desireable collector's item on stand alone basis.
