Tau Zero

SENRIC Model #KN-2


The Tau Zero™is the first original Semroc kit to be designed by Jay “Centuri Guy” Goemmer of Twin Falls, Idaho, who says he’s “an incurable Semroc fan.” Released in 2008, the Tau Zero combines an unusually-shaped nose cone, forward-swept outer fins, and an unexpected ring fin. These features add up to a futuristic sport rocket with some minor building challenges for the intermediate rocketeer. The Tau Zero kit is rated a Skill Level 2 for construc-tion, or as much as a Skill Level 3, depending on the complexity of your chosen paint scheme. The phrase “Tau Zero” is borrowed from the 1970 Poul Anderson novel of the same name.
