• Background: 'Flam-Out!’ :fire::boom: … as in catastrophic engine test.
• Front Left: ‘Raketenantriebssystem’ :rocket: (experimental rocket propulsion system). Just for giggles, I tested to see if it would actually fit inside a spare Tamiya Fuel Drum.
• Right side: The ‘Riesige Sprengbombe’ :bomb: (huge explosive bomb) atop the ‘Bombenschlepper’ (bomb mover).

Another view of the catastrophe.

Lastly: I cobbled-together an ‘Engine Repair Platform.’ Note: Still waiting for OSHA (Oh-boy, Scaffolding Hazard Awaits) approval. :ladder:
