    I didn't see a category for this yet.

    This is my son's Estes D Region Tomahawk kit done up in a nice ND blue and gold metallic fade with the CCHA and the Irish Hockey vinyl on board.

    This one is just at its decommission and 'time to cannibalize' point in its life.

    Great rocket.

    Nice looking rocket. Here are a couple of pics of the one I did. I really like this one, flies great every time all the way up to F's.

    Mine is one of the Older Estes kit D-Region Tomahawks, In this older kit if the modeler wanted to simulate the Fincan fluteing it had to be sanded out of balsa stock and applied.
    A micro version was available for awhile from Pratt Hobbies semi-scale kit D-Region Tomahawk featuring in T4 Body wrap rather then paint.

    I couldn't find a Tomahawk gallery, so I made one.

    To start, here is my D-Region Tomahawk, from Estes. Really easy build, I might have to buy another kit to convert to 29mm for my 29/40-120.

    G.D.

    Thanks for your contribution.

    There was a Tomahawk gallery so I merged the two.

    THanks again.

    ^ I agree, I keep putting off the 7.67 version. I have the file drawn for the CNC to cut the fins but I enjoy building smaller rockets now.

    Here is mine, The paint job is pretty sloppy, not one of my better efforts. It is a 10 footer (looks good from 10 feet away but up close .... ugh)

    It flies great though. I also want to get a second one to use with my 29/40-120 case and an aeropack retainer.

    I've just started a build of the Semroc
    I.Q.S.Y. Tomahawk

    On my blog at:
    www.modelrocketbuilding.blogspot.com

    When I get closer to finishing, I'll draw up the upper body detail, fin plates and bolts on a available PDF.
    Stop by and build along!

    Welcome to the SCALE (Sandia) D-Region Tomahawk Gallery on TRF.

    This gallery showcases the (Sandia) D-Region Tomahawk and those rockets derived from it. Particularly appropriate in this thread are the following:


    Aerotech: IQSY Tomahawk: #89014
    Centuri: Tomahawk: KC-40 or #5100
    CMR: D-Region Tomahawk: S1
    Estes: D-Region Tomahawk: #1944
    Estes: D-Region Tomahawk: #2037
    Neubauer: D-Region Tomahawk:
    Pratt Hobbies: D-Region Tomahawk (MMX):
    Semroc: I.Q.S.Y Tomahawk: KD-2
    Thrustline: D-Region Tomahawk: TA-024
    Yank: IQSY Tomahawk (3"):
    Yank: IQSY Tomahawk (4"):



    as well as any upscales, downscales, clones, kitbashes or other derivative works. Even Goonies qualify!



    The Tomahawk, based on the Thiokol TE-416 Motor, was designed by the Sandia Corp. as a small sounding rockets in the International Quiet Sun Year (IQSY) in 1963. Initial tests from Tonopah, Nevada and Point Mugu, California failed. The fourth launch from Wallops Island was a success, but it was not used in the IQSY experiments. NASA used another Version, the D-Region Tomahawk in 1968, but little further use of it was made.

    Although it lacked success as a single stage sounding rocket, it was highly successful as the second stage on Nike, Terrier, Taurus (Honest John), Ute, Paiute and Sandhawk boosters. Several hundred of these configurations were launched.

    Mfg. Description: Bring on the Beauty and the Beast! For all model rocket enthusiasts out there that enjoy building and launching scale rockets, the Estes D-Region Tomahawk is for you! This authentic rocket is a 1/5 scale of NASA's sounding rocket. Launched only one time in 1968, this rocket was designed to take measurements of the D-layer of the ionosphere - thus its name. Our version of this fantastic scale rocket captures all the detail of the original in an easy to assemble model that flies as good as it looks.

    In terms of performance, this gigantic rocket can blast nearly 800 feet high when powered with our *E engine. If you don't want to test the limits of your visibility, we've included an adapter to launch on Estes D engines. Finally, to protect this beautiful scale model when it lands, we've included an 18 inch preassembled nylon parachute! Get in touch with your inner astronaut today! (Estes 2011 Web Ad)

    Mfg. Description: This is an exact scale model of the single stage sounding rocket, NASA Flight No. 12.08GT, built by the Astro-Met Division of the Thiokol Chemical Corporation. This rocket was designed and flown to determine vehicle performance and establish payload environment during flight before acceptance in the NASA rocket stable. The performance was as predicted and the basic rocket was accepted by NASA. Model is precisely scaled from full size manufacturer's drawings. Color was determined from many NASA color photographs. Ideal for NAR Scale and Scale Altitude events. Original model won first in Scale and first in Scale Altitude at NARAM 11. Kit contains detailed instructions, precision scale plastic nose cone, special built up fins, true to prototype shroud, "pop" launch lug, screw head embossing tool. Recommended for experienced modelers. (CMR 1972 Catalog)
