Sirius Rocketry Releases New Deimos Kit

NEENAH, Wisconsin USA -

Sirius Rocketry is proud to announce the immediate availability of its latest kit, the Deimos Mars Exploration Vehicle.

The new Deimos is the latest addition to the Sirius Rocketry line of futuristic mid-power model rocket kits. The Deimos is a beautiful model of a futuristic exploration craft. The skill level 2 kit features multiple balsa nose and pod cones, a simulated rocket nozzle, swept-back-forward fins, rugged heavy-wall body tube and realistic full-color waterslide decals.

With its large size (almost three feet tall) the Deimos is a great demonstration rocket, featuring slow liftoffs and graceful flights. With a heavy-wall 24mm motor mount, the Deimos will accommodate a number of larger 24mm motors and reloads from D to F impulse. The large 24" parachute will bring the Deimos gently down to earth again.

The Deimos has many features that make it an easy kit to build and a fun one to fly:

- Heavy-wall body and motor tubes that stand up to higher impulse flights.
- Precision laser-cut hard balsa fins and plywood centering rings.
- Simulated rocket nozzle.
- Two full-color decal sheets make this another Sirius Rocketry signature kit and a stunning model.
- Durable Kevlar(tm) shock cord mount and generous elastic shock cord to soften the stress of deployment.
- 24" parachute for gentle recovery.
- A detailed 12-page instruction manual that Sirius Rocketry is famous for, which includes clear step-by-step illustrations as well as trademark Sirius Rocketry suggestions and tips that help you make the most of your build.

The Deimos is available now at an introductory price of $54.95 at www.siriusrocketry.com (http://www.siriusrocketry.com).

Oooh, pretty! Looks beautiful as always Dave. What's the small ribbed dowel for? Detail bits?

Thanks, took a while to get the lines right to look the way I wanted it to look.

The dowel is nothing so fancy. It essentially plugs a hole in the base of the nosecone that was drilled to aid in turning.

Please take a look at this kit, and the others I have to offer.

I am also trying to make it a point to stop by here a little more often!
