You asked and we listened! Another highly sought after kit is rejoining the Estes line! The Black Brant III is a sounding scale model 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!

    Look great, flies great

    Great looking scale model project that flies well. Easy, straight forward construction. Glad this model was brought back.

    Welcome Back

    Absolutely glad to see this one back ! Have one en route now to go with my Original 70s one. Great Scale Kit. Get this one !


    can’t wait to get this one – again

    Still have this rocket from more than 20 years ago – one of my favorites. Will purchase a couple when they are available. How about the BBII?! My all time ESTES favorite…
