Rocketarium Tank Buster 5
The TB5 represents a launched grenade used to disable, or destroy, a range of armored targets, tanks especially. This model rocket is an original design with military inspiration. It is not a scale version of a real device.
The Tank Buster 5's unique shape and six fins will make it stand out at any launch. The TB5 can be flown on B motors for low flights, or C motors for more serious action. Due to the launch lug location, a four foot long 1/8" launch rod is required to safely fly this rocket.
The kit comes complete with the vinyl decal, plastic parachute, 3D printed transition and includes the ejection baffle.

This "scale-like" version of an anti-armor rocket propelled grenade is not only cool looking, but fairly easy to build as well. This improved version replaces the cardstock transition with a 3D printed plastic one. Also a vinyl decal replaces the stencil template of the earlier kit. You do have to sand smooth the micro ridges on the transition, however. Lots of fun to build.
