I like it but I also think the N.C. was used only on this model, so it would be great if John could come up with a creative sister ship.

I got a pair of the nose cones and display nozzles in a Designer's Special back in the late 1990s. They are still sitting in a box with other used plastic nose cones.

Guess I am the odd man out on this one. I liked the model when it first came out and will likely buy the reissue. But that's me! :D :D :D

I'll wait until they hit the clearance bin so that I can stock up on body tubes.

Me too. I never build one before.

Mojo has the best idea for this one. Hopefully Grabby Lobby will get them.

Years ago I actually needed one of those cone.

I had to make a version of that cone to fit a 6" tube.

Darn thing was as big as a soccer ball!

I called Christene at Estes and she sent me one but...not before she drew an iris and blood shot veins on it with a Sharpe.

Maybe I should find it and post a pic of Christene's artwork.
