Default Lil’ Ivan

Title: Lil’ Ivan

Kit number: KV-49

Background Information brief: The Lil' Ivan was initially released in the 1982 Centuri Catalog. Its Russian décor reflected the Cold War period at the time. Produced near the end of Centuri's existence as a separate brand, it only had a two-year run before Estes dropped most of the surviving Centuri line. It was one of the first Centuri designs that used Estes parts. Instead of the ST-16, the Lil' Ivan used the BT-60 body tube and the PNC-60MS blow-molded plastic nose cone that was shared with the Big Bertha and Baby Bertha. The Lil' Ivan was Centuri #5353 and was introduced with a price of $3.95. The RetroRepro Lil' Ivan is updated by using laser-cut fins instead of the original die-cut fin sheet. The original BT-60 body tube and PNC-16MS are replaced with a balsa nose cone and body tube sizes that would have been used in Centuri's early years. The original rubber shock cord is replaced with an elastic cord for longer life. The original method of attaching the shock cord has been re-
placed by a Kevlar® cord for greater reliability.
Designer: Centuri

Release Date: 11/08/2004

In Production: 2004-2014
