Add another to the list? Very similar to the 1447 America starter set.

I don't believe it was ever in a catalog. The rocket is exclusive to the starter set.

I don't remember ever seeing it in a regular catalog. I guess it's possible it may have been a retail only starter set. It's possible I just don't remember it too.

Ninfinger only has the 1981 Retailer catalog and it isn't in it.
