I agree, The 1972 Centuri catalog was a keeper, one of the few I didn't sell a few years back.
I liked the "in flight" airbrushed tip vortex on the fins.

The '72 Estes catalog was a flimsey horizontal format.
The Estes pics were smaller and hard to make out many details.

Centuri won out that year.
