Russian Rays Guns, Rocket ships and Zeppelins 1952-1964
posted:
From my current "Weapons of Mass Imagination's series: Working on the north shore of my small island in an old factory in an undisclosed location, recreating early “Russian Space Guns”, Rocket Ships, and Zeppelin’s. In complete secrecy with the aide of two retired Russian Rocket Scientists sent over directly from Keiv.Each design is being carefully recreated in exact detail true to its original design. With a few original blue prints and some very old black and white photos that the Russian government has saved the work goes on slow but very well. This is a top-secret project so little else is currently available concerning this on going event.
“Flying Saucer Ray Gun” 1942 Found recently on Staten Island NY near the base of the Bayonne Bridge During the summer of 2014 Believed to have been tied into the H Bomb program which was secretly conducted on Staten Island it was reported that a flying saucer had been spotted in the area during that summer night of 1942.This is a ray gun that was found recently on the actual site and might be actual proof that an alien presence which was reported to have been observed around the H bomb site actually occurred. Little else is known and may just be pure speculation the government has denied any information about this and what if anything was actually going on under the Bayonne Bridge during the summer of 1942 on little old Staten Island.
“The Royal Zeftan” a Dutch designed Chinese made early naval deck gun a six shot hand crank onboard defense weapon 1640. It was fired from a swivel base stand generally mounted on the front or back of the cargo ship. Originally “The Zeftan”was deigned for the Dutch West India Trading Company to ward off sea raiders.
“The Krushaft Rocetship” 1962 Kiev Russia, this was a semi horizontal launched kerosene powered early space rocket ship prototypes. Capable of a gradual accent to some sixty-six miles up in a gradual trajectory, then with the aide of two liquid oxygen boosters this ship could in theory brake free of the earth’s atmosphere and fly into deep space. Designed almost totally by Kremlin’s leading rocket scientist Carl Kaminski who was a rather robust man, this rock ship was given the nick-man the flying elephant for its overall size and girth. Its been rumored that the Russians were very much in favor of semi horizontal launches. This rumor swirled around for many years that the Russians got the original idea of a horizontal launch from American thirties black and white “Flash Gordon” movies and their rock ship takeoffs, this has never been proven to be true or not.
An US Air force space pistol designed for use aboard the X-15 space plane in 1962,but was later canceled when funding was cut on the X-15 in 1964 in favor of non-pilot controlled rocket ships. This hand held device was very effective at short range and proved to be very durable in space travel.
“The Oscar” An all-metal skinned lighter the air flying machine, propelled by an air-cooled “Demlar” rear mounted aero -plane engine. This rather large Zeppelin was capable of crossing the far distant oceans and back again. China was her primary designation and a trip of choice for the willing and ever waiting British masses. Tickets for this journey were a mere fifty cents or two bits and could be purchased at the wireless hut on the left, which boasted an actual Marconi working wireless receiver. And on the right any candy for the flight could be had at the captain’s sweet shop. Depicted here is “The Oscar” in the process of being pre - flighted for a trip to China on a small beach in Liverpool England early evening in low wind on or about 1928
The Havenchisky A Russian space handgun taken from the “Kiev Flying Saucer #2” 1964,” The Havenchisky” named for its inventor Ivan Havenchisky. A wall mounted ray gun that combined a static charge with a small shot of hydrogen to produce an arch of explosive charge. Good for six shots this was an on board space defense weapon.
Russian Space pistols #42 it never went into production and its designers has not been found small in scale but rumored to have been very powerful. Little else is known about the production or development of this strange little device its has been dated at 1954 Moscow.
The Krochisky 1952 Russian space pistol a wall mount design designed for inside an orbiting space station as a blast pistol good for a distance up to one hundred and fifty yards.
1928 British semi electric gas charged hand gun (The Popluer] for use on zeppelins as offensive protection for close in raiders. A popular side arm preferred by the royal guard for it’s easy of discharge and lightweight.
One of our three six foot robots standing outside our studio caught the eye of a locally famous wrestler and he in turn connected us on to his friend and the local cable TV station talk show host and “whala” an hour show of my wife’s and mine art explaining presenting our work.
Amazing where this journey is taking us I am simply just going along for the ride at this point.
