ISTR the fin cans were the same red-orange as the plastic nose cones Centuri sold (with black or white plugs for shoulder/shock cord mount)

I remember seeing a blue fin can in a bagged Enerjet 1340, but never the pink in this photo.

I love the pictures; that's what I was after.

Did you guys notice that almost no one is wearing a hat in the old pictures. There a couple of people shown who were definitely going to burn.

And a two-stage using the fin can. That's awesome!
Identifying a problem without proposing a solution is just whining.

I remember this image also. Seems like it was in an ebay listing for some rockets, though none in this box of kits was part of the ebay auction (and I can't recall why this image was even part of the listing).

I recall dropping a line to the ebay lister about the kits in THIS photo (because, wow! what a treasure trove it appeared to be). Alas, I never received any response.
