Default AAA Model Aviation Fuels Aerobee-Hi instructions?

Hi guys ,
Does anyone have a scan of the original AAA Model Aviation Fuels Aerobee-Hi instructions? I need them for this year's DARS Classic. I know a couple of folks just built theirs, so I have my fingers crossed!
Thanks!

I have the instructions, but haven't scanned them in.

How urgent is this?

I'll try to get around to it tomorrow.

Could ask the "point" of the DARS classic? The instructions aren't very detailed, in terms of measurements or component lists.

Thanks! I just need any documentation of color scheme, etc, that came with the original kit. I know it isnt much, but according to the rules, it should be enough. Unfortunaely, since I built mine about 20 years ago, that stuff is long gone!

Think of the Classic as a festival to celebrate old rockets and their original designs. Except for this year when we are including a classic model competition event according to NAR Pink Book rules, it is a fun event with voting by the attendees to win prizes for the competitors. There is lots of information about it here: http://www.dars.org/fallclassic/fc2012.htm

In the past, we have had special things like an Omega mass launch.

I have a complete unbuilt kit and pics of the parts and scans of the instructions.

It is an awesome kit and I am going to clone it someday!!

And I am a huge AAA fan

I bought my Aerobee-Hi in 1991, direct from Al Andrake at the last Pearl River Convention.

I finally got around to building it this summer. It is painted; just need to put on the decals and trim tape.

Hopefully it won't take another 20 years . . .
