Nike Tomahawk-12
Iíve just finished up a sport scale Nike Tomahawk-12 made from Estes Pro Series II parts. I didnít repaint the Nike Smoke :-)

The Tomahawk fins and the Nike interstage are 3D printed in PETG.

Wow. That looks very nice!

mojo1986 05-27-2019 06:55 PM

Is that 18 mm?

Both stages are 29mm motors. The booster is an Estes PSII Nike Smoke with a new nosecone. The Tomahawk is built from parts of an Estes Ventris and Argent with a printed fincan.

How are you going to stage it?

An Eggtimer Proton in the Tomahawk payload transition.
Tubing wiring chases for motor and separation are in place.
And yes, the centering rings are printed PETG - I lost access to a laser cutter, so now every problem looks like it has a printable solution.
