Default Estes Astron Avenger reborn

I've finished with a repaint and general clean up of an Astron Avenger that I built in 2001, but I'm not thrilled with the wrap decal that I'm considering using. Does anyone have a scan of the catalog wrap decal that they wouldn't mind sharing? I'm on a decal printing binge anyway, so thought I'd ask.

Looks awesome. I love multi-stage rockets. I like upscaling them also.

I'm assuming that you're restoring the '71 to '81 version (like this one I scratch built in 2016) and not the '69 and '70 version.

I'm perilously close to making that idea come to life.
