What got my attention was the recommended motor list for the Black Brant III (BT-50).

Recommended Engines: 1/2A6-2, A8-3 (first launch), A8-5, B4-4, B6-4, B6-6, C6-5 and C6-7

The one time I visited Estes I was toured by Mary Roberts and the kit line that day was doing Mean Machines. I saw the igniter machine in action. Was banned from the graphics department.

Mary launched a Big Bertha.

The Black Brant III sounds good.
Could easily bash into a Black Brant IV which is much more interesting.

Mean Machine should be 29mm powered. Like that it now breaks down for transport.

It broke down for transport the last time it was produced.

Thumbs up Good day, eh!

The Black Brant III? That's great news! Too bad Estes won't ship kits directly to Canadian customers; it might be awhile before I can get my hands on a couple of them this side of "the world's longest undefended border" if our current little "trade war" goes ballistic.

Well Scott, I hold you personally responsible for one of the greatest rockets not being re-released. The Andromeda was one of the leading rockets to replace the SST in the header. Due to inaction, we may never see this exceptional rocket in its Estes's dressing again.
