    Not quite finished yet, needs some stays fixing on and a lick of paint.
    Made out of 40mm box section steel.

    You'll need that stool for reloading, I reckon...gonna be tricky doing it 'live'.

    Pretty sure I've seen this rack before, on the back of a Toyata pick-up in some desert somewhere?

    Haha, original plan was to just stick it in the ground which would lower it a bit but gonna make some folding legs now.

    Hey Krony. I am building a rocket rack at the moment. Do you or does anyone else ever have any problems with pre ignition of other rockets from a rack?
    Say for example you wanted to pre load two volleys of rockets but only send one volley up... What precautions would you take to prevent a mis-fire, if any?

    Why not leave the fuse covers on the volley you dont want to send up?

    Thanks Pyromaniac. Thats a good idea and very simple! Didn't think of that! Although I forgot to mention I am planning to use quick match to fuse my volleys together. Perhaps tin foil is the solution?!
    Either that or scrap the QM and just loosen the fuse covers I guess.

    The rack is looking great btw Krony!

    Yeah, quick match will quite easily cross take from the flame produced as the rockets lift! Tin foil should work, and is how I do it :) just make sure its well wrapped and hope for the best lol!

    Nice looking rack Krony, looks more substantial and sophisticated than mine!
