My scratch built version of 1813 rocket car, stand and firing marker.

Those are substantial bottle rockets.

Very nice. Firing marker looks great.

I love the firing marker. I will steal that for my Chinese rockets. Is it counterweighted in the base?

And where it stops nobody knows.

Yes, a piece of solder, I could do that or lead. Might try one of my 75 cal musket balls heat it with torch until not quite molten and flatten it.

A very nice rocket vignette. Well done! BTW, the rocket in the tube (Haley's) was not operational until the 1830s/40s.
Thanks for posting the photo.

What you want are Congreve rockets, which was a rocket head on a stick, fired from a frame.
