Mini-tank fireworks!

Post by Amoeba » Fri Jul 11, 2008 3:45 pm

Got these before I knew about BZFlag and found them again on the Fourth of July. They roll on the ground and shoot off little firecrackers if I remember right. Anyway, being bored, I set up a BZFireworks scene. Please enjoy! Oh, and sorry about the quality of the photos, I was in a hurry when I took them.

I've seen those before. I never thought of making them before.

Yea, we want to see pictures! I want to see how they make: BANG!

I haven't set them off because I live in an area generally lacking in concrete and asphalt... they go crazy and it's no fun on a board. I'll send pictures next time I light one.

Put firecrackers in them before you light them, or strobes (they set the tank on fire) or both . Just stick the fuses in front of the little spark shooters (the bottom ones I think). :D

I did NOT MAKE the tanks! I BOUGHT them at a fireworks store. The firecrackers are BUILT IN. However it would be satisfying to cram some more in and see what happens! He he, KAPOW!

I never said you made them, I was merely suggesting you... 'adjust' them before you light them. :P

Lemme get this straight...am I seeing price tags for...$169!? :? Or $1.69 with no period? 'Cause $169 is absolutely ridiculous...
By the way, good idea.

Hehe.
I once bought a bunch of tank fireworks and lit them when they were facing each other. :twisted:
