This will also work for a fast puff of smoke on engine start or for the guys who battle it can simulate your tank is dead and burning.

Few little bugs to work out but looks like a winner.

I guy I work with uses an e cigarette, and I was wondering how much vapor they could produce for some tank installation.

Where did you get that microfan?

Thanks for sharing Don

Cheers

Thats pretty cool! The new Vapes especially the modded ones that are out can put out more smoke than the E Cigs. That would be awesome to have that on Engine start up.

I got all the parts from Ebay. This e cig has to have the button pushed to make the smole. To solve that problem I purshaed a small soleniod. The recoil activate a switch. When closed the solenoid is activated and pushes the button for the e cig and it operates another switch then energizes the fan. You have to either find the perfect spring to return it to ready or install a simple 5555 delay timeand reversing switch like in my operating tank commander.

Hey does anyone have a spare Sherman?
