Hi Russel.

Check out Kristians ftp site(i have alink on my page), there you will 
find lots of documents, info and pictures.
Seems like you want to build a solid state coil to begin with. You can 
also check out my homepage(listed below) i have some plans there too.
I have built some of those with flyback TV transformers and they work 
well but doesn't produce BIG sparks. They are a good start though.
Be careful and good luck.
