Default Pemberton Technologies 2.5 inch Space Ark

A question for those of you PemTech savy:

Did they make a 2.5 inch version of this rocket?
I know they made 3 inch and a 1.64 inch versions, but I guess I missed this offering.
Any info would be great!
Thanks in advance!
Allen

No 2.5" that I ever saw. I've built the 3", it's a fun flyer on small H motors. I built the 3" Bucky Jones 10 years ago, which is a regular flyer.

Perhaps it's a clone?
I bought it off eBay. Worked out a fair price, I think. The kit arrived the other day, and on opening to examine contents, I see it has a nice NC and TC, and the fins (wings and tail pieces) are a lite ply precut.
The 3 inch size was just a bit large, but this size should be perfect for E's thru G's.

Curious. Does it claim to be a PemTech kit? The 3" PemTech kit didn't include a tail-cone, just 2 nose-cones, one of which was modified by the builder to become a tail-cone.
