Which Little Joe are we talking about, the Mercury (Little Joe - I) or Apollo (Little Joe - II)?

My reference was to Lee Piester's favorite kit the 1/45th scale Little Joe II. I was not an experienced enough modeler to do it justice when I first acquired it as a kid

Well, I wasn't all that experienced, either, when I got my Centuri Apollo Little Joe - II (the
1/45 scale), but it wasn't all that difficult to assemble. I thought it was really dandy that
Centuri even had the corrugated body wrap already applied, and figured they had already
done "some of the work" for us. But, if I was to build another kit like it today, I would be able
to do a much better job than the one I have (38 years old, and still flying today!) .

Mine was to both.
