Unsuccessful rebellions, indeed, generally establish the encroachments on the rights of the people which have produced them. An observation of this truth should render honest republican governors so mild in their punishment of rebellions as not to discourage them too much. It is a medicine necessary for the sound health of government."</em></strong></font></p><p><font size="1" color="#993300"><strong>Thomas Jefferson</strong></font></p></font> </div>

Cool! To bad it's illegal here to import model rockets. <img src="/images/icons/frown.gif" /> <p>Well, you <i>can</i> import them, but you have to get a firearms dealer's licence first! <img src="/images/icons/shocked.gif" /></p>

Techincally it only applies to the motors. But depending on how it was classified on the invoice the Customs department could apply it to the model as well.<br /><br />The problem is that model rocket motors are considered to be explosives - much like the DOT wanted (wants) to do in the States.

I'll send it to you in a plain box marked "fragile, computer parts" if you like. <br /><br />I'll even remove the motor mount first, if your principles require that.

Or you can just wait and buy the Scaled Composites kit for a few more dollars. So, start grinding up those tires and go to lots of dentist appointments. (-;
