If you can get your hands on the November-December 1972 issue of Jr. American Modeler magazine, there is an interesting article on page 14 titled "Shoot Your Own Air Pix ", an article written by Bob Cannon who was the Estes Educational Director for many years.

The article cover the camroc and cineroc rocket camera's, very interesting reading. This Jr. American Modeler was a companion issue to the regular American Modeler and American Aircraft Modeler magazines.

In the 1958 through the 1970's the above mentioned magazines carried great rocketry articles, Model Missiles, Inc articles and great model rocket company ADs in the back.

These magazines can be found on ebay if you search for the above mnags. All great issues.

I'm in the process of finishing an Alpha with the paint scheme from this ad.

I actually found the ad in a 1968 Boy's Life magazine, though.

For you folks that don't feel like clicking....

Holy cow! :) I think that this may be the very ad that started it all for me - except that I saw it in a late '66 issue of BL. Wowee! :)
