Wow, Terry! Thanks for sharing all the great historical information and photos! That's some really cool stuff!

I see from one of the photos you posted that the MRI Theta 37 kit had yet another version of facecard different from the other two I already showed in post #37 of this thread.

Kind regards,

There are a couple of exotic looking rockets with clear payload sections in those photos. Any information on them?

The Encyclog is a large format document. I have never found access to a large format scanner. Someone suggested just using the camera on my phone, but 9-point font shot from four feet away doesn't show up very well.

That was me. Figured it was a longshot. Good to see you back around.

For reference, here are images of some of the early AVI announcements in the 1972 Model Rocketeer magazine issues that Terry Dean (shockwaveriderz) mentioned. Thanks, Terry, for identifying those.

Those photos are great! Any idea where the photo of the motor machine was taken? For yet another variation of the Theta-37 packaging, this one has (presumably) an older version of the hangtag:

Nice assortment you have there, PaulK! That hangtag with the star is a very unique one!

Found another image of the MRI Theta 37 orange and yellow facecard that is not curled so much.
