Default 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.

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.

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.
