I bought my Astron from Semroc before it was bought by eRockets. The only indication that I could find on the instruction sheet for a date was the 2010 copyright date.

I emailed Randy about the following Semroc Kits that were re-released by ERockets to try to get a release date. My opinion was that there was remaining stock at eRockets or Semroc so these kits were never re-released because there was stock on hand. Randy got right back to me and said he thought they were re-released and instructions would have a second date which is the eRockets date, but he was away from the shop and wouldnít be able to check for a while. Unfortunately, several kits received from the eRockets clearance had no date, so were either not re-released or the kits without dates in the first place didnít get a date. It may be a while before Randy can check, so Iíll ask again if for the kits below if you purchased from eRockets if you can check the instructions for a second date:

KA-5 April Dancer
KA-4 Astro-Jr
KA-23 Astron
KA-19 Earmark
KV-16 Javelin
KV-67 Magnum Sprint
KA-21 Mini Aero-Dart
KA-28 Mini Centurion
KA-26 Mini Optima
KA-6 My Boid
KM-4 Omega Payload
KV-79 Sam 3
KLV-16 SLS Javelin
KA-3 Squire
KV-24 Swift
KA-13 Yung'un's Nuke

KA-33 Centurion F - Mar. 29, 2013, Oct. 26, 2015.

I also have instructions for the Mini Aero Dart, Mini Centurion, Mini Optima, and Yung Un's Nuke but the dates are prior to April 2015. Even though I purchased the kits from erockets. I believe after April 2015.

Thanks for the Centurion F, Do the instructions for the others have the North Carolina address? That helps establish some were not re-released.
