Default SIG Kommander

I had been looking for one one these kits for awhile and finally found one here on RCU in the market place. Its one of those airplanes I always wanted to build but never did. It showed up at my house in perfect condition still shrink wrapped from the factory. But, I was a little surprised when I opened the box. All of the balsa parts are printed on the wood and not die crushed. Nothing my bandsaw can't handle but I got to wondering.
It must be an older kit from when it was first released. I am curious, when was the Kommander released on to the market? It is not listed on VRCS list so it must have been released after 1/1/70. I also noticed the kit has no full size plans, really don't need them because everything is printed on the wood. But, this is an airplane that will fade away for good because their are no plans to recreate a replica from.[sm=50_50.gif]
I hate to see a design fade away[sm=frown.gif]
