You may be well informed of the Apollo Saturn V rocket and you may even be aware that it had a younger Apollo brother, the Saturn 1b. But, anyone would be quickly pardoned for being completely oblivious to the smallest member of the Apollo family. I present to you, the Apollo Little Joe II. The little joe was made to test the LES (launch escape system) which is the device on top of the rocket. This rocket is the most powerful solid rocket ever made. Five flights were launched on the little joe II and each were successful. As for the estes model that I have here, it may be the most detailed model that estes has ever made. I enjoyed every part of the build except the decals. #littlejoe #nasa #estesrockets #vintagespace

Had an awesome saturday Estes rocket launch with the 1619 Up-A-Creek FIRST Robotics team! They also enjoyed some lectures on rocket engine operation and cycle mechanics while getting a tour of our #Berthoud test facility. #estesrockets #rockets #rocketengine #firstrobotics #engineering #aerospace #mentoring #outreach

I learned today that the ancient Chippewa would shoot flaming arrows into the sky during eclipses because they worried that the sun had lost its fire. The returning sunlight only encouraged their beliefs. I didn't have any flaming arrows. I only had #estesrockets to launch. #eclipse

Super proud of my lines with this. #modelrocketry #estesrockets #executioner #estesexecutioner

Ground control to major Fran. 3 successful launches and recoveries of our first rocket. Swipe for more. #adventuretime #juniorrocketscientist #homeschool #unschooling #estesrockets #octobersky

Rocket update: the Asteroid Hunter is assembled and top coat on. #estesrockets

Finally finished with the Estes Black Brant II. The first one I built was in 1988 when I was a freshman in high school. I remember losing part of it on the first launch (as a D12-5 was the only recommended engine). The area I used to launch at my dad's farm was large, but also difficult to recover pieces that went super high (I don't have good eyesight, so tracking rockets back then was super difficult). I remember a friend had built the same kit before when we were in middle school and he still had the nose cone assembly, which is the part I lost. I was pretty happy to have that all back after he sold me the part! I had this kit till it was tossed after some time. This was my favorite rocket at the time and I was proud to have it as the "main" member of my fleet.
My kit was a skill level 4. This was skill level 2. I converted this to work on 18mm engines only as I want... this... back.

Getting the decals in place on this Estes Black Brant II build. Some of these older kits have taken me a while to complete and I have no reason as to why. I’ll post pics when this is finished.

My completed yet unnamed Estes V2. Finished in #Tamiya NATO Green with a healthy dose of matte clear coat. Red nose is Gloss Hot Lips by Dulux Duramax. Decals by me. Yellow banding by Monokote. Weigh in to follow. Will fly on D's and E class motors.
Edit: I've decided a name for my rocket... The 500 Pounder or just The Pounder for short.

Pretty much finished the V2 except for one last step. #Unsure about the star decal placement, might re-do them in the morning. Perhaps. Maybe. After the v2 and Mosquito I will be moving onto something special. #modelrocket #modelrocketry #rocket #estes #estesrockets #v2 #decals #waterslidedecals #stickers

Progress on the V2 finish. Using Tamiya acrylic paint NATO Green (TS-61) and a Dulux enamel for the nose tip, Gloss Hot Lips. The acrylic paint went on really well, smooth and consistent. Decals and yellow monokote banding come next. #modelrocketry #modelrocket #rocket #estes #estesrockets #v2 #green #red #tamiya #dulux #paint #painting

Friday night fillets. First set curing on the Mozzie. Feels good to be working on this rocket again. Wouldn't mind building a high powered version, maybe an upscale with a 29mm motor mount. #rocketry #modelrocket #modelrocketry #estes #estesrockets #mosquito #fillets #filleting #epoxy #araldite

Happy with the super smooth finish of the last coat of primer on the airframe. Made a start on actual painting with the shiny red nose, the only gloss that's going to be incorporated into the finish. Off to buy the colours I need now. #modelrocket #modelrocketry #rocket #estesrockets #estes #v2 #primer #smooth #rednose #red #paint #painting

The fleet. No launches this season yet....#estesrockets
