Some files relating to the launches of the "Kuifje Raket" made by amateur rocketeers from the Tripoli project in the Netherlands.

A 3mb film (zipped .avi) of the launch

Rocket plans

More pictures can be found at their site

Update September 2005 Deleted some of the links which had gone dead. For those still interested go to the main site and look under "Projects". There's also a great Thunderbird 3!

Hey, that’s really good! It looks just as I’d have hoped it would, and the fact that it flies (okay, I know they have installed avionics etc. to guide it etc.) is remarkable!

I also like the fact that the plans refer to the one in the book as the “real” rocket in reference to the scale...

Nice find, Harrock!
