Thank you, Dave! So much has happened, and so much time has passed, that I couldn't recall which all "new" ones had been added; I just saw that some 'unfamiliar' (in that list) rockets had appeared since I last looked at it.

When much happens, and when time goes by, that is the time when we must pick up the pieces and keep moving forward !

Nice! The operational (bulbous-payload [the test version had a short conical nose filled with seven tonnes of concrete ballast for stability!]) Falstaff was used to test the UK's Chevaline system, an advanced decoy system for their two-re-entry vehicle version of the Polaris A3 (externally it looked like a regular Polaris A3; the Chevaline equipment was inside the payload fairing--Chevaline sacrificed the normal third RV for a much greater probability of foiling Soviet ABM systems). HEROS 3 might be "kit-bash-able" from an Estes UP Aerospace SpaceLoft kit. I'd love to see a Terrier-Improved Malemute (it seems to be "today's Nike-Apache"), made of model rocket materials/parts (stay tuned...)--ditto for the Talos-Terrier-Oriole!

The Operational Falstaff looks like an Honest Goon.
I left the engine nozzle off the HEROS 3, might fly it with a MicroMaxx motor.
I used 110# cardstock, instructions recommend 65#, which would have been better.
Had some difficulty working with the thicker paper.
Thanks for the link, Blackshire.

Great looking rockets.
