      This is just a test Gary to see if it lets me add a resource even in a group that is not mine after posting a comment!

      The pictures below are from a workshop I ran today at Highfields School in Derbyshire.

      There’s a video showing launchers being made at a workshop in Reading at the ASE Conference in 2011 here:

      Is this the most up-to date version of this?

      Still not quite sure how to make the dragster without the plastic tube as a guide….

      Yes, this is still the same design. You can still use the plastic former to make the dragster – if you aren’t using the 28mm collars. But if you are using the collar then you wrap one end of the paper around that and hope to get the other end reasonably well wrapped too.
