Astron Spaceman kit: Antique or Dusted-Off re-issue?

And a beer.  Mmmmmmm.
A pic of my ol' Spaceman built in 1973.

This was a fun model rocket to build and fly.  Even though it was touted as tumble recovery, it usually landed head-first, causing numerous dents and divits on top of the balsa head.  This model never failed to inspire wise-cracks from fellow rocketeers and spectators on the subject of 'flatulation-power'.....

This particular model was originally painted white with some sort of an astronaut motif.  Later, when I became a member of Dennis Bishop's 'Starlords International Association of Rocketry', it got repainted in the manner of the StarLord Mascot.

I almost have a notion to build another BAR-version, just for nostalgic grins!
