Just Like You Remember
I bought this kit for its nostalgia value — it’s the Semroc clone of the Estes Aston Scout kit of the 1950s—70s. Kit parts are reasonable faithful to the original, and I intend to use the Astron Scout instructions from the JimZRockets website in constructing it, which are just what I remember from my first model rocket kit built back in the day. They don’t make ‘em like these any more!
