Default Enerjet Pterodactyl on ebay

Currently there is an opened complete Enerjet Pterodactyl kit on ebay with a starting point of $179.95.
It is strangely listed as a "Centuri" Pterodactyl, not Enerjet.
The seller has many other vintage Centuri kits.

Yeah, that one has been listed for about a month. I think it's just a simple error by the lister; some folks think/use the names Centuri and Enerjet somewhat loosely.

We (Oregon Rocketry) had a Pterodactyl -- open but complete -- donated the year before last.

I made three clones of it, then had George Rachtor donate it (and the other items in the lot) to the auction at NARAM earlier this year.

If anyone is super interested, I could make more. It is not a complex kit; the only unusual part is the keel, a long piece of basswood.

The only distinguishing thing:

No bag header!

And I think I replaced one of the sheets of original balsa, which had split. (I left the old balsa in there, for completeness sake!)
