thanx a lot Charlie
This is the one i've been looking foor. Haven't seen it here even though i've been searching for it (maybe did not spell it correctly).
Only problem now is that i'm out of toner in my color laser printer and will be so until end of the month , but then i will go for it and perhaps add the LED's to it as well
best regards Håkan
I contacted the designer directly, and he sent me the files. A terrific model - absolutely wonderful fit. No need to use the complicated compasses cutting method: just scissors worked excellently for me. Planning to build a second version with open hatch and led lighting. Picture on my website www.zeistbouwplaten.nl, Aviation>Space

I found the retro rocket at the top of the picture while searching for this sort of model via Google Pictures. Then I had to contact the designer, who kindly sent me the files - sorry, I have not made a note of his name. I will send you the material if you like. One drawback to many of these phantasy rockets: no, or only badly fitting formers... an experienced designer friend helped me out.
The thing in the bottom of the picture is a tin toy, based on the same sort of SF book covers of the '50ties.
I have attached a bigger picture of the Tintin rocket for you.
Always interested in more of this type of model! No later than ca. 1970 - I am not into Startrek etc.
There's a link in this thread to another Tintin rocket, complete with LED lighting on this forum. Remembered it from awhile back. Tried to download a couple of times, had a corrupted file. Tried again today, perfect download. Like the idea of mixing paper modeling with simple electronics <G>!
You can download that model now, bladix. The download rule is just for models we host. That's a very nice model Valmy. The pieces for the pods on the wings have to be cut with a beam compass, I wonder how many left in this generation even know what one is let alone how to use one. I actually have one very similar one shown, it's a Sterret, except mine is around 12" inches long. Nice forum with lots of nice models. Thanks for the link Valmy!! :thumb:
