SEMROC Model #KV-65


The AMROCS Hawk was released in their first catalog in 1965. Upon first glance, it looks like the Estes Falcon and was heavily influenced by it. The changes were the elimination of 1/16” balsa to give it more strength and durability and changing to a metric body tube and a hollow hardwood nose cone. The lead weight was eliminated due to the weight of the nose cone. Instructions were added to modify it for NAR competition. The Hawk was catalog #K-6 and was introduced at a price of $.75 or 3 for $2.00.The Semroc Retro-Repro™Hawk™uses laser-cut balsa fins and a precision turned balsa nose cone. The keel is made of basswood for a sturdy build. This kit has just recently been upgraded with a 13mm motor mount that gets ejected and returned by streamer to make it NAR Competition Certified, and the airframe has been set up with tabs and slots for easier construction.
