A summer acquisition was the Airfix Water Rocket, this time in red completing my tiny collection. I had the blue one way back in the seventies, but on a card backing as shown in this Airfix toy catalogue.
Essentially a large syringe, this red example needed a little tlc to bring it back to full health, but with the box, it looks great. Its pictured above with the Timpo/Park Plastics Two Stage Rocket, which was realeased around the same time.
Airfix also made a rather nice buildable rocket in the awful Betta Bilda series, a british attempt to grab a slice of the Lego market, but due to the bricks weak grip strength, did not fare as well.
