Stuart Lodge has been involved in Aeromodelling for nearly thirty years, covering the whole spectrum of disciplines. Currently a scientist with the British Rail-based Scientifics, he has also worked in higher education and the agrochemical industry. Since Model Rocketry - Space Modelling was introduced to the United Kingdom in 1988, steady growth has taken place. Space modelling has been a global activity for over thirty years, being practised throughout the United States, Europe and Australasia.
This book services the need for a text to take enthusiasts past the simple kit stage and on to advanced projects. In addition to coverage of sport models and high power rockets, Space modelling related to international competitions, sanctioned by the Federation Aeronatique International, is developed extensively. This is the most comprehensive text ever produced on Space Modelling and the only one to be on the cutting edge of current activities. Chapter content include constructional methodologies, launching systems, recovery systems, propellants, stability and aerodynamics, rocket boosted gliders, scale models, contest rocketry and a miscellany covering variations on the theme.
