Default Enerjet 1340 Kit on Ebay

Just FYI for interested collectors. I don't have the URL for it, but a quick search on eBay under Enerjet should do the trick (not my kit nor do I know the lister).

Kit still in bag WITH F52 motor.

Will certainly be interesting to see what this gem goes for. In the photos section of the listing the lister shows this kit inside a larger container FULL of other bagged Enerjet kits...this form of 'teasing/torture' is not for the faint of heart Enerjet collector....

Based on a couple of observations I made I think they are SPEV's. That is to say not original production kits, but either end of line kits or perhaps packaged from spare parts and some aftermarket parts added to complete the kits.

To begin with that photo of the 1340 seems to have original instructions/literature, but a pink fin unit was not used with any I saw nor would Lee put an F52-5 in a 1340 kit. He would be more likely to put an F52-12 if going to CA or F67-14 if going anywhere else, or a G76-12 if going to a true "sounding rocket" customer.

The listing says "MIP" not "NIP", so it is not false advertising either, because who even knows what MIP means?

"Mint, In Package" is my best guess.

The same fella (?) has a bunch of Centuri Mini Motors up as well.

It was not me. I had my father drive me over there (too young to drive) thinking it was a rocket company. It was a house.
