Default Semroc Knightdale/Dayton Hybrid

When Randy at erockets bought Semroc he stated he wanted to re-release all the Semroc kits. I always assumed when he bought Semroc he would have gotten some kits, face cards and parts, and would have used everything he got. I have seen many of the erockets versions of the Semroc kits, the main difference is the face card was updated with the address changed from Knightdale NC, to Dayton Ohio. However, it is possible some kits never got the Dayton address update because there were still North Carolina kits available both at Semroc and at erockets when erockets bought Semroc. Attached are pictures of two kits with North Carolina face cards and Dayton hangtags, which demonstrates erockets got, or printed, North Carolina face cards and used them with their own hang tags. One hang tag is just stapled on but the other is heat sealed like North Carolina kits were.

I have never been able to confirm erockets re-released these kits with the Dayton Facecard:

KA-5 April Dancer -date on eRockets instructions- 12/12/15
KA-4 Astro-Jr -date on eRockets instructions-12/12/15
KA-19 Earmark -date on eRockets instructions-None
KV-67 Magnum Sprint -date on eRockets instructions-7/22/15
KA-21 Mini Aero-Dart -date on eRockets instructions-1/1/17**
KA-28 Mini Centurion -date on eRockets instructions-1/1/17**
KA-26 Mini Optima -date on eRockets instructions-11/12/15
KM-4 Omega Payload* -no eRockets PDF
KV-79 Sam 3-No eRockets PDF
KLV-16 SLS Javelin -date on eRockets instructions-5/10/16
KA-3 Squire-No eRockets PDF
KV-24 Swift -date on eRockets instructions-3/2/16
KA-13 Yung'un's Nuke -date on eRockets instructions-4/27/17**

**The dates on these instructions are well after eRockets announced they had re-released ‘all’ the Semroc kits- 121 of them. (The 121 does not include cc kits, xkits, boosters or the rocket rack).

So if you have a Dayton kit of the ones above I would like to see it.
