Default Estes 36 D Squared question

I pulled the remains of this kit out of the basement today. I was kind of disappointed in it at the time and cannibalized it for other projects. I still have the oddball transitions and fins, but I'm at a loss as to what tube lengths I'll need to finish the project. Can any of you tell me what lengths of BT-50, BT-60 and BT-70 I'll need to get this thing finished?

I wish Estes would still include body tube lengths, as well as the familiar body tube name, like BT-60, on kit instructions.

I have not memorized the new stocking numbers for parts, like 030396 for the BT-60.

Alternatively, if instructions/dimensions are not available from JimZ/YORP, John Brohm's Estes body tube reference list is an excellent resource:
2119
36 D Squared
030413
BT-70
10.00"
031681
BT-60
8.00"
030364
BT-50KE (2)
15.00"
031680
BT-70
4.50"

Thank you, gentlemen. I'm shocked that neither option occurred to me, especially since I'm mentioned on John's document.

The John Brohm document is about as an exhaustive an effort as could be done on Estes body tube kit references. To all who helped pull that together (and yes, I remember seeing John reference you, Bill, in his document), my hatís off to ya. Fantastic effort!

I had started my own list, but it was nowhere as well organized or as in depth as John's. If he pulled one or two pieces of info from mine, I'd be surprised.
