This 1:13 scale model rocket is a replica of the primary research vehicle produced by Canada Bristol Aerospace and is an excellent choice for your first scale project. Construction is fairly simple with the high quality parts included.
The Black Brant family of sounding rockets was made in Canada in the late 50s. More than a half century later, highly reliable Black Brant rockets are still carrying scientific payloads to high altitude. Second in the series, the 8.5 m long rocket first flew in 1960. It was eventually succeeded by the smaller but more powerful Black Brant III.
The Estes Black Brant II is loaded with scale details. You can finish it with detailed waterslide decals and use the recommended D12-7 motor (sold separately) to reach incredible heights.
