Rocket Test Rig

Rocket Test Rig by Stefan Marjoram
Rocket Test Rig, a photo by Stefan Marjoram on Flickr.
Here's a quick sketch of what's in the workshop at the moment. It's the test-rig that will be connected to the biggest rocket ever fired in Britain. The huge tank will be filled with HTP and pumped into the rocket by the Cosworth formula 1 engine.

I did the sketch in pen, then photographed it and added the colour with the iPad. Works pretty well as a process - saves booting up the old desktop and scanner - I'll be doing it again.

love the sketch. i have to learn how to do these hybrids myself.

ps - love your new photo, very 20's automotive, but you missed the 'racoon eyes' from the googles.

Blimey, there's an interesting thing to learn - what do you hope to do with your hybrid?

Glad you like the photo - the reason I haven't got the raccoon eyes is because I didn't have any goggles at that stage. I could barely see the next day! Got some now though :)
