    I always wondered about the difference between a turbine and a simple rocket.

    that was a cool demo.

    Thanks Ryan , they remind me of my work as an illustrator back in the army drawing Underground mussel sites and weapons systems.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Wow the Gnome rotary had me going. I did not know the cylinders rotated. When i first saw the animation i was convinced it was wrong with the cylinders rotating so i took some time to check and its accurate. Heres a video to prove it

    There are (were) some other crazy rotary engines. I'd really like to see a Millet bicycle in operation, it makes my head hurt looking at it though

    One of my Looooooong todo list is to build a nice version of a model flame licker engine (technically a sub form of the sterling, but makes a lovely little put put noise as it runs)
