Default Estes Saturn V K-36NF (Non-Flying) Kit?


Anyone know much background about this kit? 'Non-Flying' version of the Estes Saturn V kit, apparently produced just for the Kennedy Space Center (gift shop there at KSC, I assume).

Kit appears complete and seems to be the exact same components except for motor mount internals and chutes that would normally be used for flight.

I've not seen this kit before and I cannot find any references to it on-line anywhere. If you have any additional background, feel free to share what you know.

Obviously, this is a pre-Damon version. Don't know if it continued into the the post-Damon era or not.
