Nope. Apparantly, it's been out of print for some time and there are no plans to reprint. I have heard of copies selling for upwards of US $500 on eBay.

Best of luck.

I made an entry on my site about it a few weeks ago. Peter Alway was kind enough to comment, as well as list what Aussie rockets appear in what supplements.

This one is worth getting and as a bonus all the sounding rocket motors appear to have a TRA/NAR motor designation hehe.
