The Black Brant series represents the most successful group of sounding rockets ever launched! This advanced 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 we’ve included. Great performance and really impressive flights!
Guess who’s back! After 20 years in hiatus, the Black Brant II kit is rejoining the Estes line! The beloved Brant is sporting the same classic design from the 90s, however it’s now reproduced with laser cut wood fins and plastic toothpicks. Fun to build and exhilarating to fly, this rocket is one of the highest flying model rockets in the Estes scale collection.
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 28 foot long rocket first flew in 1960. It was eventually succeeded by the smaller but more powerful Black Brant III.
A stunning model, the Estes Black Brant II is a 1:13 scale replica of one of the earliest in the group. Standing nearly 25 inches tall, this impressive rocket is loaded with scale details. Finish your rocket with detailed waterslide decals and an 18 inch pre-assembled parachute for gentle recoveries. Use the recommended Estes D-12 engines (not included) to reach heights of 1300 feet. Build and fly your Black Brant II today!

This is the Estes Green Eggs rocket. Put rocket building and launching skills to the test with the Green Eggs Bulk Pack. A crowd-pleasing STEM activity kit for launch parties and science projects, this bulk pack comes with 12 rockets. Each kit includes its own set of instructions.
A perfect science activity for both kids and adults, the Green Egg payload rocket includes a plastic payload section to carry its fragile cargo, a raw egg. The lightly tinted green payload section is transparent so rocketeers can see how their eggstronaunt is handing the flight. Educators, youth group leaders and rocket launch party hosts will love creating an ‘egg-static’ experience as rocketeers work towards making sure their precious cargo returns safely home.
