And my obsession with dragons continue

For Halloween this year, I am going dragon!
I have already made a flying dragon mobile, now its time for the centerpiece
a real fire breathing dragon, i have been randomly posting bits of it all over the forum
and thought I would put it all in one place.

since building the body would be impossible, I am designing a ‘cave’ where the dragon will have his head poking out and flaming…

SO to start Here is my fire testing the dragon head

no, I am trying again with a 12v 1000k igniter, the issue with a pilot light is then more tubes to run, and deal with it blowing out (it will be outside) I need something that will light the LP every time…

I’ve reflected on this at times and knowing that there are insects that mix two chemicals together to create stuff, I figure dragons must have some type of gland system that makes an hypergolic fuel that ignites when mixed. It’s really the only way they could be fire breathing without a pilot light.
