It's possible that there was a new run of "Select a Chutes."

I have a set of what I 'm calling "Middle Raytown" classic kits. Oso, Penetrator, Vikings, etc. They all have red parachutes and the smaller kits all have 18mm / 21mm motor adaptors.

The Penetrator I bought around 1975 had an ogive hardwood cone, but that doesn't mean your kit wasn't different!

I remember the yellow nylon parachutes. I guess they came in in 1977, along with the Black Brant II.
