Scud Missile for Kids

Introduction: Scud Missile for Kids

I was watching a war movie and got inspired.
i saw all these explosions,bullets,casualties and missiles ant hougt mmm let's make something like that but save for kids to play with.

remember macGyver or tour of duty?

Well here is something to make within seconds and with a lot of imagination it got the same effect.

Step 1: Start

You need to get 3 simple things to start with;

- a pen
- piece of paper
- Matches (for projectiles and to launch it)

Step 2: The Pen

strip the pen.

Because you'll need the pen holder and the spring.
The rest of it is garbage.

Step 3: Missile

you need 2 matches each time and the rough side to strike it on.

Step 4: Everything

this is the complete equipment for the scud missile.

matches en strike

the pen holder and the spring.

also a little piece op paper to keep the spring in place.

Step 5: Step by Step to Shove It In.

On the picture you'll see how to put it together.

You need the pen holder empty.

Than on the bottom of the spring you'll need a piece of paper.Because otherwise after the first launch you're spring is gone.

and finally the missile (matches) to stuff it in.

Push it until the heads are stuck in the pen.

Step 6: Finally

this it how it is.

a transportable and kids proof rockit launcher.

You need to strike the heads and dan it's

    I dont get how the thing gets pushed out by the spring. I mean, do you hav to press some button or do they fly out when u light the matches? How come they dont fly out before but fly out after?

    well, the scud name is almost spot on, so inaccurate you have to fire two to feel good about yourself, and so inaccurate they still won't hit the broadside of an encampment 10 feet away XD next the Patriot, a 50 match shooting version designed to shoot down the one in a million chance that a scud gets too close XP

    what happens is the matches are pushed up against the spring and wedged in the pen because their heads are to large, when the heads burn off the spring launches them.
