Well as projects go this could keep you out of trouble for a while. The only downside I could see would be LL and gateposts...  rubschin:

Drool:
"Tanks-a-Lot"   lol: lol: lol:

You just know that if he built one BM would also buy a set of fatigues and drive around Cyprus pretending to be in the Army...  whistle:
Some days I think the only thing keeping me from becoming homicidal is that the voices can't agree on which weapon would be the most fun.

What's the worst that could happen if BM tried building one of these and flew to the mainland...

Firework display?  rubschin:

Well BM is a master of falling and Nick is an expert when it comes to knackered boilers so perhaps the pair of you can show him how it's done....  rubschin:

Steam powered rocket eh?  Am I the only one to have read that and immediately thought Evel Knievel and that canyon jump fiasco?

Anyway he may be a flat earther but good luck to him

Well, whatever nevermind

Doesn't have to be steam as NASA are giving the first stage of a Saturn 5 rocket away free as long as shipping is paid for...

Fill it full of BM's homebrew and it would probably make it to Mars in a week....  rubschin:
