You could include the "Pro Series" kits from 1992. They were built with heavier materials and powered by 2, 3, and 4 D12's respectively, getting them into the low E through low F range.

Impulse
Maxi-Force
Patriot missile

Not advertised measures, but my Panavia is 41 1/4 inches long (with the motor retainer ring screwed all the way in) and weighs 14.3 ounces. Itís built essentially stock except that it has home-made 1/8 ply baffle plates on the coupler and rail buttons instead of the 1/4 inch lugs. No epoxy reinforcements, stock shock cord/mount, simple finish of Rusto 2x primer (one coat) and Rusto 2x colors (one coat).

I really love those PSII kits.

I'm building a Sahara and Panavia; I added an ejection baffle to the Panavia, and for both added interior fillets with milled fiberglass, kevlar shock cord anchors, and am using finishing epoxy.

Super sturdy and slick and H-capable.

I missed out on all the early builder'skits like the Ventris and Leviathan. I did manage to get a Panavia before they disappeared. Itís getting bashed into a Super Sky Hook.

The little one is a Semroc Sky Hook II, a slight upscale over the original using a 1Ē tube.

I should have thought of using the Wayback Machine to get that data....

Looking at the first entry it appears that the overall length doesn't include the projection of the motor retainer ring aft of the end of the body tube, for whatever that is worth.
