Back in 1974 we got bored and tried making rocket cars. These were made out of oat meal boxes and wheels from an old toy. The black fins were savaged from my Big Bertha. To keep the nose down, I used cardboard fins canted up. The problem we had with the car was keeping it straight.

My first The Launch Pad Kit, an AMRAAM AIM. My first "D" cluster rocket. First kit was damaged by UPS and dealer sent me a second kit for free. So I fixed the damaged kit and assembled both. Now I have 2! First time I have had 2 of the same rocket at the same time. Up 21 times. On flight 20, only one engine ignited but rocket still flew ok, no crashes.
I have 2 TLP AMRAAMs because the first was damaged in shipment and they sent me a second one. Click here for videos. White one flown 23 times.
