Sandia Sandhawk Scale Rocket Kit [RK-1030]



Skill Level: 3

The Sandia Corporation did research for the Atomic Energy Commission in the 1950's to develop nuclear weapons. The Sandhawk was one of the rockets used for this research. It was flown in single stage and two-stage configurations. This is the single stage version.

The Sandhawk model rocket comes with the ejection baffle and stands a proud 37.3" tall. A mid-power rocket for super-sized fun! The model includes details such as fin plates and plates between the fins. These are formed from templates and a body tube section.


The bolts found on the fin plates and plates between the fins are cut out of a single decal sheet. The fins and bolt plates are pre-cut.

A body tube is cut into sections that fit between the fins. A template is provided for this. Cutting a body tube in this way can be a challenge.

The plates are optional. They add to the visual appeal and make it easier to mask off those areas.
