Default Centuri Model Rocket Design Manual

I managed to pick up a copy of the Designer's Manual, but the one I'd really like to revisit is the Design Manual. I had a copy in my couch safe, but lost it when the couch got thrown out. I think it came with my Centuri Aerospace Team pack, but I'm not 100% sure of that. Does anyone know if there's a copy hidden online anywhere?

Bill-

You talking about the prior version of the one you posted an image of? Smaller size, copyright 1971?

If so, here's a link:

If you want the one you posted an image of, I'm not sure if one is on-line or not. I have one I can scan (well, I have the older one too, if you want a better scan of it).

A Ďblack and whiteí version here of the newer one. Note, this one is truly black and white...no gray tones at all.

That's the one I have. I'm looking for the late 70's version.

Yeah, it's a little harsh. Can you scan your copy and post it here? That one is readable, but the pics are a little tough to see, and that was part of the appeal.

Itís gonna be kind of a busy weekend this weekend, but I can scan my copy and send to Scott for posting. Iíll try to do that by early next week if at all possible.

And yes, I got mine with my Aerospace Team membership back in the day too. Was a good deal to join for $1.00, since that was the cost of the manual by itself. Or course, Iím sure they hoped that customers buying the manual (or being CAT members) would hopefully buy more Centuri parts.

Thanks. Don't rush on my account. I was just reading the Vintage Rocketry Retrospection blog and couldn't remember if I saw it online in the past. Good to hear that I was likely right about getting it with the CAT membership.
