The Estes D-Region Tomahawk is a 1/5 scale flying model of NASA's sounding rocket. Launched only one time in 1968, this rocket was designed to take measurements of the D-layer of the ionosphere - thus its name. Estes's version of this fantastic scale rocket captures all the detail of the original in an easy to assemble model that flies as good as it looks.
In terms of performance, this gigantic rocket can blast nearly 800 feet high when powered with an E engine. An adapter is included to launch on Estes D engines. Finally, to protect this beautiful scale model when it lands, a 24-inch pre-assembled nylon parachute is included.

The Estes Mini Honest John is a mini-engine-powered sport scale model of the U.S. battle field artillery missile. The kit features a detailed molded nose cone and laser-cut balsa fins. Simple to build, the resulting model features plenty of detail that you will be proud to display.
The Estes Nike Smoke is a 1/10th scale flying model of the Nasa sounding rocket developed in the 1960s to explore the behavior of horizontal winds in the upper atmosphere.
This one-tenth scale model of the Army's M-104 Patriot air defense missile features authentic decals and parachute recovery.
Powered by C11, D12 and E9 engines, the Estes V2 kit is a flying scale model of the Aggregat-4 ballistic missile developed by the Germans during World War II. After the war, the US used the V-2 as a research rocket to kick-start its rocket development program.
The launch photo shows a rocket built from this kit by Chris Michielssen (of the Model Rocket Building Blog). Chris cut the fins provided in the kit down slightly to closer match the ones on the real rocket and added details such as the servo pods on the fins.
