Now that I see how they look, I'm going to see if my sis will cut me some "Thiokol"s.

Thanks again guys


I love all the information thatís come out. My 1/5 pro series kitbash is also definitely sport scale. And beautiful in the air.

Best luck on your Paiute flights.

What do you think about that UTE Fin Drawing ? It looks "off" ( not drawn to scale ).

You have to remember that these were just a couple of kids at college.
And not engineering but a business college.
So we get what we get and we are forever thankful!

I'm not criticizing them, at all . . .

I am saying, however, that it might be a good idea to redraw everything in true scale, for accuracy's sake.

If there are any "CAD Guru's" out there, I will be happy to send you everything I have on this prototype.

Shoot me an email : Ez3cDave@aol.com

Going off of just the overall length and width and accounting for given angles only,
this is what I come up with.
Almost a perfect match to the Thiokol print with a slight deviation where the
small angled notch near the nozzle ends up.
The seven STA's from top to bottom are:
0, 10.3, 20.1, 23.9, 26.6, 27.2, and 30.3.

Minor correction: William and Mary is a public university, generally known as a liberal arts college. Rob majored in Physics with a minor in Theater. I majored in Economics with a minor in English.

Discrepancies in the source documents could be the reason this data has not been
compiled into a single drawing yet.

Tried scaling off of the hand drawn beauties from Thiokol but even those
have anomalies between different examples of the same fin.

There are more color photos of different payloads -- but no dimensions.

Best we can hope for is a drawing(s) with a couple of "~" here and there.

Good enough for a great sport-scale model.

Chris,

If you have the skills to "do this justice" ( I do not ), shoot me an email and I'll send you everything I have on the UTE & PAIUTE TOMAHAWK, in return for a copy of the drawing(s) generated.
