If we're looking at full scale reproductions or our own fast speed designs, then I'm afraid that it's useless to ask the government (unless you want to ask the Chinese government, that is), at this point it's better to go search for funding among billionaires. Elon Musk would be the kind of guy to fund this, but then he may well claim it as his own design, so it's your call.

As soon as they went into administration, one knew it would be the end. Alas, the project took too long and sponsers get bored unless they get a return for their cash.

It would make a great stand-in exhibit at the Ruskin when K7 is out on tour!

Yes, a brief item on the local news said they had moved to a new base in Gloucetershire, not far from where I live.

Interesting snippet, a mate of mine who helped with some development work at the start of the project, revealed that an early version of the design used a formula 1 engine to power the fuel pump for the rocket motor. One helluva pump to need a f1 engine as the prime mover. Not sure if this is still the case with the latest iteration of the design though.
