In case anyone was wondering what the inside connection looks like for the 3 blade antennas on a Black Brant II Rocket
Nose Cone the image below will give you an idea of what the connection looks like.

I think the flat object on the inside wall was a micro meteorite detector

here are 2 doors that were used on the Black Brant 2 payload section that were jettisoned in flight
Photo was taken in the mid 60s

That would be a whole new level of scale modeling. ;)

Really, some of the mostly electronic experiments of 60 years ago could be shrunk to fit inside an MPR today. Not that there'd really be any point to it without the altitude.
