Brinley (1960) was an amazing, albeit ridiculously dangerous, book for budding rocket builders. A small Czechoslovakian disposable rocket engine marketed as Rapier is the ideal power plant for making scale-model rocket gliders. Manufactured in four levels of thrust (L-1 through L-4), the Rapier is a solid-fuel rocket motor that is started with a fuse. Once lit, the Rapier quickly builds up thrust for a burn duration time of 20–25 seconds. Liquid-fueled motors, reinforced concrete test bunkers, and advanced metal nosecones, bodies, and fins characterized the bulk of this handbook’s “how to” guidance.

Alternatives, such as the cosmetically similar Rapier motors and the venerable metal-tubed Jetex (or Jet-X) motors, can both be used for powering your evil attempts to explore the stratosphere. In most rocket-powered aircraft designs, reusable Jetex motors can be substituted for the Czech-made Rapier motor. One benefit from electing to use Jetex motors is that you won’t need to construct a motor mount—a paper and wire container that is essential for holding Rapier motors during flight. The Jetex motor is equipped 27 Copyright © 2007 by The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc.

Army (hoping to inspire future generations of Robert Goddard physicists), Brinley’s book was packed with dream-inspiring illustrations penned by Barbara Remington. Likewise, an inspirational Foreword by Willy Ley almost compelled you to run into the garage and blow a couple of fingers off your hand. The conventional design scheme for Rapierpowered scale models is to equip your craft with a motor trough. In other words, the rocket motor hangs from the bottom of the aircraft model inside a hollowed-out cavity, which is obscured by the fuselage’s side profile.
