Default AVI 1974 Catalog

I was just looking at the 1074 AVI catalog (http://www.ninfinger.org/~sven/rock.../74avicat.html), and there are exact copies of the Quest Zenith II payloader and Quest Pipsqueak in there! What's up with that? Somebody doing some 'Back to the Future' style time travel?

That is because AVI bought out MPC. Quest bought the rights from AVI. Many of the original Quest kits are actually MPC kits.
