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!
