Default FS Centuri Hercules

I have a nice NIP Centuri Hercules. It does not have a hang tag or header card so I assume it was a giveaway kit. Weird nosecone that I think may have been used in the Enerjet 1340?

$35 shipped US. All proceeds go to the NAR Legacy Fund for archiving our hobby's history.

I am going to give this a few days here, and if it doesn't sell I'll try another venue....maybe one of you old timers or old timer wanna bes (like me) will dig this kit.

I am apparently too dumb to post pictures, but I have a couple I can email if ya like. DM me with your email address and I will send them to you.

That's the kit that graced the front cover of the 1972 Centuri catalog, but as one of the mass-market 'Stellar' line of kits that had been introduced a year earlier, it was not in that catalog.

Around '75 or '76 Centuri started trying to move these kits in bags only; no color boxes like they had been in for mass market sales.

But the Hercules is a nice kit; well, they were all nice kits. I never really understood why they did not list any of these kits in their catalogs.

That's a good price on the kit; if I didn't already have a couple, I'd go for it. But, yes, that PNC-132 in the kit is the same one used in the Enerjet Nike Ram kit, the Taurus kit, and the smaller glider in the (early 70s issued) Space Shuttle kit.
