Hi all here is my next project (with a bit of trepidation)never built a rocket before but, I do think the paint job is boring to say the least, so, eXpect some major changes.

Hi all well I've run out of cotton wool, and as you will soon see I need lots of it for this, so this is on hold till I can get to the shops.

Hi all I asked my missus if she could get me some cotton wool whist at shops and she came home with cotton wool balls, not much good but I had an idea where I could use them.
