Introduction: Bic Rocket Launcher

About: scholarship to ERAU, going for pilot's lisense when I'm 16 prefer to read html rather than page shot a twizzler with a bb gun from 10 ft.ect...

Today: a rocket launcher made out of a bic mechanical pencil.
Tomorrow: mini warheads

Step 1: Gather Materials

you'll need;
a bic mecanical pencil,
some scotch tape,
thread or other fuse,
propellent(I used match heads,
and a vice grip or
other means of breaking off the cap

Step 2: Crack It Open

Break off the cap and anything in it (after removing the grip)then pull out the led cartridge.

Step 3: Final Assembly

Tape the cap to the part where the eraser used to be and put the grip in the clip as a sight or grip.(optional)it should look like the second image

Step 4: Final Prep

insert a 4 or so in. long piece of thread in the hole in the back of the ammo then put in your propellent of choice.Matcheads work fine especially if you crush them into a powder.

Step 5: Troubleshooting

you can't figure out how to fire it:the cat is smarter than you
you want to sue me:for what you did all on your own?
you are bored:get lost

    Of, and yes. I have found that the photo is perfectly clear. I do not know about you. Sarcasm is not very appreciated, you don't seem to know that,do you?

    Sarcasm is the worst sense of humor. This does not apply to me.

    I recommend the "macro" setting on your camera. It will be represented with a little flower icon and is most helpful in focusing on close-up objects.

    Why do you find it "stupid and confusing", would you care to explain so I can improve it?

    Try keeping your face away from the exaust. The rocket will not explode...

    Yeah, as long as you keep it a little bit nose heavy. You can use a piece of wax on the end for practice rounds. This has the benefit of being formable to an ogive.

    you need to make a movie clip of you making it and launching it. I tried to make one but the match head powder did not ignite
