    Wow, probably the only thing we have in common. Model rockets rock! Although, nowadays they have those pre-made plastic fins that take all the challenge out of it. Putting on the balsa wood fins perfectly straight was at least 80% of the challenge. Packing the chute right is most of the rest.

    If you look hard enough you can still get the cardboard and balsa ones, I burned off a load of them last year at the end of school with my kids.

    Um, we were studying parabolas or something, but mostly we were just firing rockets.

    Shouldn`t have to look hard, An-egg. Estes still makes a ton of rocketry stuff (I just checked!) that should be available thru any general hobby store. http://www.estesrockets.com/

    well, it`s good they are doing wood fins. It`s been a while since I looked and back then all I saw were plastic fins. Is everyone ok now?
