The expression of fear in no. 2 is real. I really lucked out in the sequence fitting together.

No longer in orbit, sitting down with a nice cup of tea to calm the nerves.

Sprocket says:

I can't claim authorship of the title, Dhamaka used it first for our Moblog Meet.

Wow! brilliant ..... now for a more authentic looking Sprocket the Rocket you might try wearing a pointy hat ....

25th Nov 2006, 16:01

Sprocket says:

MD - I was think maybe a red cape would set it off best.

MaggieD says:

Mmmm, Sprocket the Rocket ... pointy hat as nosecone or red cape as superhero .... bodyshape more suited to the rocket methinks ....

25th Nov 2006, 17:29

Sprocket says:

. . . but I've already gone out and bought the cape :-(

Twiglet says:

"And I think it's gonna be a long long time
Till touch down brings me round again to find
I'm not the man they think I am at home
Oh no no no I'm a sprocket man
Sprocket man burning out his fuse up here alone.."

Bernie Taupin lyrics (nearly!)

Nice one, Twiglet .....

haha brilliant, well done sprocket, cool series, with just a hint of panic about the top two pics :D

25th Nov 2006, 23:57

Sprocket says:

the jumping was fine, it was the landing that was a little tricky.

26th Nov 2006, 10:43

Sprocket says:

. . . and undignified.

WoW! That's some launch there. But careful, "No capes, darling". Did you not see The Incredibles *shudders*

A tumbler I see!

29th Nov 2006, 22:43

Sprocket says:

SB - ah yes, ok, NO CAPES!

TS5 - less "tumbling", more like "falling with style"

Belatedly, these are fab. I particularly like the look of terror, it adds authenticity.
