Well then you can't just slather it on the outside of the shell, the fuse would ignite it while it was in the tube, and that would be a disaster. You can't inject it into the shell as that may prevent the powder from igniting properly. Hmm. What we need to think of is how you're going to incorporate it.

Ya, I realize I can't put it on the outside, hmm. I was thinking of slicing it open, dumping all the guts out, smearing the inside of the walls with napalm, putting the stuff back in (I know how to do it properly), and then taping it up with masking tape or something. I found a tip on skylighter on how to make shells fit better; you simply roll it width-wise on a hard, smooth surface while applying pressure... I only hope that I could find the right combination of tape amount and strength of my patch job.

But do you know where to get some polystyrene?

Styrofoam cups. Tear them into pieces and put it in the gas, should dissolve the pieces. Amazing, one of the most powerful military weapons can be made from gasoline and styrofoam cups.

I know how to make it, I was just wondering if you knew of a common, cheap, plastic household object that I could use, because polystyrene plastic is much denser than styrofoam.

edit: btw look at my previous post I think you missed it^

Yeah, but I don't exactly have any that I want to just melt into napalm...
Are those cheap plastic rulers polystyrene?

It would appear that many of the plastic disposable utensils you can buy are made of polystyrene.

I'm not sure really. Most plastic disposable cups are polystyrene. Or do you mean will stuff like polyethelene work?

I think polystyrene is it. I searched Wiki and that's all I could come up with. The military in Vietnam used low-octane gas, polystyrene, and a bit of benzene (which happens to be a carcinogen) so if it doesn't burn you to death, probably die of cancer later. But I'd just stick with polystyrene products. It's not like it's expensive or anything.

Ok, I think I saw this article too, and I think there is benzene and benzine, both of which can burn, but one is used as a fuel and not a carcinogen, I think that is the one with a e, and the other, which used to be used for shaving soother or something, is toxic, and a carcinogen. I saw this in wiki also, but I don't know if that is correct.

EDIT: Ok, I looked it up, and the one with and "e" is carcinogenic, but the one with an "i" isn't, its petroleum ether, and highly flammable, which I am assuming they used.

Actually, they're both carcinogenic apparently. Benzene is what you'd use.
