There was a post on this forum from someone that had an original mentioned a smaller chute for the nose. The instructions on JimZ do mention in step 15 if one chute is larger attach it to the lower assembly. The picture in the instructions also shows 2 different chute sizes. Maybe it varied what chutes went in the kit since it is worded “if”?

Oh, and everyone thought it was cool it came down on two chutes.

Yes, here's the Step 15 you referred to. Centuri sometimes did some parts substitutions, and as you mentioned, some kits may have contained a larger and smaller chute and some may have come with just two smaller chutes. I'll go back and double check mine at some point and verify. I got another sealed one, but I don't believe I'd be able to discern chutes sizes in it.

Ok, checked my open Argus and it did have a black and yellow 16” chute and a blue and white 12” chute. So, two different sizes in mine. They were both folded fairly small so at my earlier glance I thought they were both 12” chutes.

Thanks for checking! 16 inches, hmm, actually might not be a bad choice, the 12 inch worked fine for the bottom assembly, it's pretty rugged, but 16 sure would have brought it down closer to the nose.

I'm thinking anything with the Enerjet 1340 fin-can should have a 29mm mount.
Argus, Phoenix Bird, Challenger 2, etc.

That tube was originated by Centuri. Then, Estes used the same tube for the Astrocam back in '79 when it first came out. The Astrocam may have been the first Estes kit to use that Centuri tube, but I'm not positive on that.

Actually, the first Estes kit that used Centuri tubing was the Space Shuttle (1284). It used the following Centuri tubes:

ST-20 (BT-67) for the external tank.
ST- 8 (BT-46) for the SRBs.
ST- 7 for the trailer fin tubes.

What I was stating was the first use of the *ST-13* tube by Estes, not the first ever use of a Centuri tube. But, it is a good trivia question to know the first ever use of Centuri tubing in any Estes kit. I knew the shuttle used the ST-20, but did not realize it also used the ST-8 and -7. Thanks for the info!
