    I am going to be getting the Cosmodrome Black Brant II soon. I am looking to do the paint the hard way, with blue taping the white areas for the black stripes. I also have 2 Estes versions. In the Spring, I am looking to fly my 3 larger ones. Along with the Cosmodrome Black Brant II, I will also be flying the Cosmodrome Black Brant 5C and the PML Black Brant 5B. Since they are scale models, they will be flown on white lightning motors. I will post a picture of the three of them together once the Black Brant II is done.

    Welcome to the SCALE - Black Brant 2 Gallery on TRF.

    This gallery showcases the Black Brant 2 and those rockets derived from it. Particularly appropriate in this thread are the following:


    Cosmodrome: Black Brant II:
    Estes: Black Brant II: #1958
    Madcow Rocketry: Black Brant II (2.6"): K-153



    as well as any upscales, downscales, clones, kitbashes or other derivative works. Even Goonies qualify!


    The Black Brant is a Canadian-designed sounding rocket built by Bristol Aerospace in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Over 800 Black Brants of various versions have been launched since they were first produced in 1961, and the type remains one of the most popular sounding rockets ever built. They have been repeatedly used by the Canadian Space Agency and NASA.

    Estes Black Brant II (#1958) Basic Information.

    [​IMG] Estes Industries

    Black Brant II

    #1958

    Introduced: 1986
    Final Year: 1998
    Re-introduced: 2001
    Withdrawn: 2003
    Designer:

    Type: Scale
    Motor Mount: 1x18mm
    Recovery: Parachute
    Stages: 1
    Length: 24.875"
    Diameter: 1.325"
    Span:
    Weight: 2.29 oz

    Mfg. Description: An outgrowth of the 1950's Black Brant I program, Black Brant II's payload capacity was increased to 6.2 cu. ft. by changing the nose cone's shape. The Canadair air frame was aerodynamically stabilized by 3 fixed fins. Total fin span was 39". The motor contained 2,000 lbs of solid propellant and delivered 16,000 lbs of thrust over a 25 second burn time. Total vehicle weight with propellant was 2,642 lbs.

    The first two Black Brant II's were launched in October 1960 at Fort Churchill, Canada. The next two were launched from Wallops Island, VA during November 1961.

    Used by the Canadian Armament Research and Development Establishment for upper atmosphere research studies, Black Brant II's were fired mostly in Canada's Northlands, carrying up to 150 lbs of payload to altitudes of 100 statute miles.

    Beautiful model of Canadian sounding rocket features a 1 to 13 scale ration. Complete with detailed plastic parts, three color decal, huge 18" recovery parachute, and die cut balsa fins, this powerful D-engine model can fly well over 1200 feet. (Estes 1986 Catalog)

    Cosmodrom Black Brant II.

    Modeled after some photos and line drawings for the BBII and Wallops Island paint scheme. #0-80 screws through-out. Excelsior decals (water-slide). I replaced the nose cone with a fiberglass one from Madcow. Bonded the cone to 3.75" of body tube. Added a coupler and made an av-bay inside the cone. The screws around the switch and RST port are used. Aeropack retainer recessed in cone. May not be show quality scale, but I like it. Figure I better post these before she flies. Best she'll ever look!
