As drawn it won't work. The spark gaps are wired in parallel, they need to be wired in series.

See the Wiki on Spark Gaps

hey jimmy my main man nice diagram (idiot proof) really cudos to you,,

but since yesteday ive decided to put my combustion cannon on hold,and build a pnumatic cannon,which i finished tonight,i didnt wait for the glue to really dry so i decided to fire it at 8o psi and omfg ,i cut a piece of 1/2" copper ,50mm long and wraped it in duct tape,i then decided to aim and shoot at the towles hanging on the clothesline,thinking the ridgid hanging towel would absort the impact,think again it went straight through the towel....... ill post a pic tommorow when the sun's shining
