    Not a whole lot to write. This was my last 'Wet' F39-9 reload. The dude I bought them from had had the packaging get wet. And these were quite old to begin with. I'd found the other two had delays that when way long even when drilled. So I drilled this one more like a F39-4. It still was a tad long... but not a drama queen! It's beginning to look a tad worse for wear...

    Took off like a bat outta you know where and I was too close... so this is the only shot I got.

    The Adept ALTIM-1 beeped out 906' (276m). Recover was good.

    Attached are a few more of my Aerotech IQSY Tomahawk. The first with a CTI F30-6 WT long burn and the second with a Aerotech F24-7.

    Here we are! After many months and learning and trying to fit in rocketry to a hectic schedule I've finally finished my first two rockets.

    An Estes D Region Tomahawk and an Estes V2.

    My Tomahawk carries a DIY half moon baffle system in the coupler, with kevlar and a snap swivel attachment to an upgraded 24inch chute, and my V2 is mostly stock but again with a kevlar shock cord and snap swivel chute attachment.

    I found the building of these two very easy, considering they are my first builds. Balsa was a bit of a learning curve in the V2, and wasn't aware of coating or filling techniques till it was too late. Therefore I have some weak fins and you can see the grain through the paint, but a lesson learned.

    I found painting the hardest, with the Tomahawk my first Guinea pig. Poor thing, not enough patience and some cold conditions cracked the paint, and I only used Tamiya masking tape on the edges instead of all over so the paint seaped through the cheap masking tape I was using for bigger areas. This left me having to do this black and red scheme as to hide the ruined white surface underneath. Nevermind!


    My fillets leave a lot to be desired on the V2, and I tripped over one day and snapped a fin but managed to repair it okay. I'm sure my fillets will be better next time. What is best to use for fillets?

    My oh my was that black and white test patter hard to paint, but for my second ever try it came out surprisingly well! The masking gave me a headache but the Tamiya tape gave me neat clean lines, and I only mucked up a few times, barely noticeable from this distance.

    Now I finally get to launch them the weekend after next! Thanks everyone for the help they put in to me starting out in rocketry, I'm now ordering a Mini HoJo to continue my scale collection!

    The 2.6" kit is scratch-built. The 4", I'm pretty certain, was a Yank kit.

    I'm gathering parts together right now for a 3.1" model to fly on a J90.

    Here is a picture of a 35mm Photograph from 1988 of my Estes D-Region Tomahawk.
    Sadly lost to a low flying Cloud. She simply went into it and never came out.:confused2:
    Was one of my Favorite rockets to fly back in the day. I should probably build another.
    Painted my Body Tube silver.

    ETA: Build in progress, and I'm going to order one of the new, now discontinued Estes Models too.
    After those, if I'm not satiated, there will be a BT-80 Upscale on the drawing board.;)

    ETA: Just got the newer Estes Version. I wish they did not discontinue this one. I'll have to keep my eyes open for deals on another, as I really like the quality of the plastic components.

    This is clearly the WORST GALLERY EVER!!!
    The title clearly states the name of the rocket as the D-Region, and then everyone puts their ISQY tomahawk in here.
    I'm going to do a Tomahawk Cruise Missile model and come post it in this gallery.

    Well, the moderator that established the gallery indicated from the start that both D-Region and ISQY Tomahawk models are gathered here. As I understand, they are related designs, whereas the cruise missile is not. Probably the title should be updated to reflect that.

    What's the difference between the Estes 1944 and 2037?

    If I'm not mistaken, the newer kit has a lot more detail courtesy of molded plastic parts. The fins, fin can, and nose cone are all pretty highly detailed for the size. I think the older kit was much more traditional in terms of build layout, though I've never had my hands on one to be certain. I have built the newer one, as shown earlier in this thread, and found that it was a kit that was easy to build and get scale detail due to the effort Estes went through tooling it. I'd like to build another to replace my treed one if I can find a good deal on the kit...

    I was just pokin' fun.
    Yeah, I think the Title should be updated too, as there is currently no ISQY Tomahawk Gallery.

    Thanks to Kyle, it seems as if I will be doing a study of DRT Kits similar to what I did with the Estes Crossfire.
    29mm DRT and Two stage 29X2 to 29 Nike Tomahawk sort of to follow.:)

    Just completed my Estes #2037 D-Region Tomahawk. It was built stock and weighs 9.8oz without motor. Even with my average paint skills, this is a real stunner. I think it is one of the finest kits Estes has ever produced. I recently bought a second kit but now I want even more backups. I plan to maiden this next month.

    Finished my D-Region Tomahawk 2037 Estes kit this past weekend. Agree with all - detail and tooling is great on this kit. Curious to see how well it flies and stays together - I've heard the fins have a tendency to pop off. I used super-glue in place of model cement. Hope to fly it before it gets too cold. Weighed 9.92 oz without engine.

    You'll be alright, then. For some reason, they just won't bond to model cement. Mine flew beautifully well, until I launched it in too small of a field and lost it on a roof. I was afraid to knock on the door and say, "I lost a rocket on your roof. Can I climb up there and get it?"

    Launched my first flight with this one this weekend - my first D launch ever. Loved the slow steady liftoff with the D12-5, however the 5 seconds felt more like 30...chute popped way to close to the ground for my comfort. D12-3s from now on in this baby (or E9-6s). One of my fins popped off after touchdown - no damage and glued it back on with Super Glue. Looking forward to the next flight!
