    Any ideas for making a parachute for my Mercury Spacecraft display. It needs to be billowing and maybe 10-12 inches in diameter.

    My immediate thought is spinnaker cloth. You can sometimes get it at sailmakers or at places that sell kite making supplies. My other thoughts would be rice paper or high quality tissue paper.

    Howdy Don,

    try one of the model rocketry sites. Look them up in google, or search for parachute patterns

    have a good day,
