The D - Region Tomahawk was flown early in 1968. This vehicle was intended to fly to the D layer of the ionosphere, thus the name "D - Region". Tomahawk rockets are used to this day as the upper stage of many sounding rocket flights.

The D - Region Tomahawk has long been a favorite of scale modelers. This minimum-diameter "Peanut Scale"kit flies on 13 mm "mini" engines and features basswood fins, balsa nose cone, decals, and streamer recovery.

This kit comes with laser-cut fins, water-slide decals and complete instructions!
