THIS will be my 2nd Talk, at the Big Model Hobby Show.  I will be giving presentations of around 45 minutes along with Keith Hick, though out the day, entitled:- "Rocketfan."

This will be more of a nostalgic trip, looking at the era between 1960s to 2014, on Aindale and Southport beaches.  I will also chat about what influenced us, with lots of pretty of non-technical information, but we will also provide some technical information as well.

My talk will have 3 elements:-

  • Several of the scale models which survived, a hobby which can be crash happy
  • Examples of the rocket engines which powered these.
  • Film of some of the launching off Ainsdale beach, which resulted in flights up to 2,500 feet.

At the event, I will also provide those attending with background information, along with exhibiting some of the model rockets. We promise all displayed engines have been deactivated!
