Default Estes Sweet Vee R/C R/G Instructions?

Does anyone have a set of instructions for the Estes Sweet Vee R/C Rocket Glider, or know of a source? It's not on JimZ's site. I have the kit but for whatever reason no instructions.

So.... the reason why I asked about the instructions. I'm auctioning this Sweet Vee on eBay, along with 11 other kits.





Thread about the rest of the auction:

I see you have some good ones up for auction.
Would you happen to have a K21 Gemini Titan you would be willing to sell ?

I've seen you asking (drooling, lusting) after that in some other thread.

Nope, don't have that. I did have one in late 1970 (6 to 8 months into the hobby), terribly built, didn't fly it much. I do remember what a PITA those Gemini window/concave areas were to try to carve out and look right....and never really did look quite right on mine.

I totally get it if you'd want one as a collector's item. But since IIRC you wanted one to build to fly, there's so many better options now for a "collect the key parts and do a bit of scratch building" model. Since after all, there was still a level of scratch building involved with that kit.

Heck, if I really wanted to build a Gemini-Titan bad enough, I'd either do a BT-80 version, or 3" tube version, flown on a cluster of two D12's. As I did with a BT-80 sized X-20/Dyna-Soar Titan-II. And use a 3D printed Gemini, screw carving those blasted concave window areas! Nice thing about the the X-20 version was not having to screw with clear fins, which were also a mess on my 1970 model.
