Well that is correct.. but a bloody awful gearbox !
Hers another engine..
Well if we're playing Top Trumps....
Well, I will do when the lazy gits stop standing around and finish building it.
What is that??
With people looking at it.
(Go Ogle 'Wartsila')
Whose willy is biggest ??
Not a diesel in sight........
Doesn't count....no pistons.
Pissed n broke
Or on/off switch
Basically just an explosion in a tube.
Who needs moving parts??
Like a fart, in other words.
Quite a big one......
And one of my biggest regrets in life is not witnessing one of these lift off. I did see a satellite launch when I was in Florida and that was unbelievable, can't imagine what witnessing a Saturn V launch would have been like...
Just build yourself a pulsejet engine Andy, much more exciting standing a couple of foot away from even a small one of those than a few miles from any of those you have posted ..........
Be sure to post pictures & video's of the ensuing carnage though
They found wreckage at a cliff face somewhere. Couldn't at all figure what it was as parts didn't add up.
Eventually found out - it was a gut who strapped a jet engine to top of car but lost control and it took off, apparently.
I understand they were quite 'exciting' when the engine cut out a few thousand feet overhead.
Remarkable technology for the time.
Few are aware that the Japanese had a manned suicide version - the Ohka - albeit there's was rocket powered and was launched by being dropped from an aircraft. Did a lot of damage to US ships.
"....albeit their's was rocket powered...." Dementia creaping in, eh...?
Always wondered how a Kamakazi pilot passed out of training...?
