I have 2 of these sets. The hangtags a not in great shape, but the items inside a sealed and in pristine shape. I'm posting on Ebay to sell. I am an avid Model rocket collector, but these are a bit of an anachronism to me as I do not know what type of engines they take. Production around early 2000's. Please see images.

2 Listings

Set 1 - Venus Model Rocketry- Fiberglass Micro Model Builders Pack - "Streamer" | eBay

Set 2 - Venus Model Rocketry- Fiberglass Micro Model Builders Pack - "Streamer" | eBay

Wonder how heavy it is?

That was my thought, too. But looking at the tubes in the listing, they may be made from very thin fiberglass. I have some sheets that are only 0.003" thick, like a sheet of paper. A 9" x 12" sheet only weighs 0.372 oz.

These apparently use the Quest MicroMaxx motors.

Interesting, this is the first time I've seen a fiberglass airframe on an MX rocket.

This is not fiberglass like the preformed filament wound ones used in high-power. This is two layers of hand laid 25 g/m^2 glass. He sold 40mm diameter kits that flew on Estes A motors; those weighed about 10 g without motor or recovery device.
