Nitro Glycerine is made by the action of Nitric acid on Glycerine. I'm pretty sure adding Nitromethane to Glycerine won't create an explosive compound.I could be wrong of course so I'll put my tin hat on and get into me trench. In fact if it creates an explosive the best place to be Eh?👍

leaving aside the fact that nitromethane is not nice stuff to have around in an undiluted form I cannot see adding it to glycerine making anything like an explosive in fact the nitromethane is an explosive ( potentially) all on its own.

Calm down guys! 😲
I was only tongue in cheek musing about a miniature cruise missile since we were into Jetex etc.
If we're not careful we'll get the NSA on our necks 😡

At least one idiot ( sorry politician ) has tried to say the model rocket guys could produce a guided missile! Getting hold of the higher powered rocket engines in UK is difficult. With some thinking and a bit of fiddling quite effective pyrotechnic effects can be manufactured HOWEVER its your eyes and hands that are at risk if you try it.
