Default Weir Rockets

I saw this posted on Ebay, had never heard of this company, and thought I'd ask here. I asked the owner of the kit and he said he couldn't remember where or when he got it. Possibly as a door prize at a launch in Pittsburgh.

Anyone have any info. Was this the only rocket they produced?

I vaguely remember the company name, but that is about it. Donít really recall a time frame of their existence.

I want to say I vaguely recall the name Paul Weir, but I may just be thinking about Bob Weir of The Grateful Dead. I'm not a fan of their music, btw.

Several years ago I got one of these in a collection I purchased. I ultimately sold it and, at the time, I tried to learn something about the company. Unfortunately I came up with about as much as is written here. not much help other than to say there is not a lot of information out there.
