Part of the Argo series of sounding rockets, the Journeyman (Argo D-8) was one of several sounding rockets developed by the Goddard Sounding Rocket branch of Aerolab Development Co, pre-dating NASA.  Helping NASA gather radiation data before the Mercury flights, this short lived family helped the US prepare for putting man in space for the first time.

Assembled from off-the-shelf military hardware, the Journeyman is a 5-stage rocket consisting of 2 side mounted Thiocol XM-19 Recruit motors, a Thiokol TX 206 Sergeant, 2 Grand Central Lance rockets and an ABL X-246-A6 Altair.

An exciting addition to the FlisKits 2011 line and a must have for your fleet, this 1:16 (approx scale)  Journeyman is a fun, easy to build sport scale version of this historic vehicle.  Featuring balsa nose cones, a detailed balsa lower adapter, accurately scaled Recruit motors and water slide decals, this model is sure to attract attention at any launch!

First flown at a CMASS launch in 2009, this is one of those models that has been in the design phase for years, just waiting for the right opportunity for release.  The FlisKits 9th anniversary event was just such an opportunity!

Check out the short photo album below for additional details on the look and construction of the Journeyman by FlisKits.  Perfect for the scale buff, this is also a great model for those just beginning to look into scale modeling.  B and C motors give it flights low enough for smaller fields, yet high enough to satisfy most any rocketeer.

Show up at your next launch with a scale model that will attract attention, both on the ground and in the air!  Other scale models by FlisKits include:

- Tartar
- Nell (Part of the Goddard Series)
- L-13 (Part of the Goddard Series)
- Saturn 1B 1:282
- Thunderbird
