The problem is that when the rocket is at a normal to the camera I can see it: eg when I see this then it has the correct colors etc / | | | | | | Then when its viewed along the line of fire like the below I can just about (if I'm lucky) see a small part of its outline: _ / Why would it disapear like this ? I draw my rocket like this:

GLUquadricObj *rocket = NULL;

Display list for rocket

glNewList(rocketlist, GL_COMPILE);
		rocket = gluNewQuadric();
		gluQuadricDrawStyle(rocket, GLU_FILL);
		gluQuadricNormals(rocket, GLU_SMOOTH);
		gluCylinder(rocket, 1.2, 1.2, 8.0, 5, 5);
		glTranslatef(0.0, 0.0, 8.0);
		gluCylinder(rocket, 1.2, 0.2, 3.0, 5, 5);

First off, congratulations!
Now I find it more helpful to the community if you did one of the following, instead of just editing the topic-title, which wasn't bad at all.
1) Delete the topic using the edit-page. (Check the box and press submit)
2) Edit the topic-title (like you did), but also provide the solution that you used to fix the problem.

Again, I'm happy to see you fixed the bug.
