Coincidently, I just found the plate that came with my Mustang kit in a baggie along with a bunch of odds 'n ends.

The AeroTech kit serial number plate was the idea of Scott Pearce at AeroTech. The Enertek kits would not have included this item. As it was, the serial number plates for the AeroTech kits were kind of pricey, even in quantity. I believe they costs fifteen cents each in quantities of 2500-5000.

Bob, I thank you for this information. I never owned an Enerjet kit, and my two Centuri-flying "eras" came before and then well after Centuri's introduction of the spec plates.

Default Spec plates: was Nike Ram Clone

I remember the Centuri 13mm kits came with Spec-Plates... Speaking of The Centuri mini kits/motors...I also remember test firing a couple of A4-2M 's (the long Green Casing) and having a pretty good burn through on the side of the motor casings...the Sure-shot "dots" had lost their glue but the pyrogen worked like a charm...was it just me or were those great ignitors?
