Will do, the builtup one is pretty rough, been crimped and then reinfoced with coupler inside to get back in shape.
Pretty sure I have a set of decals for one, not sure about the cone though, would not be too hard to clone is you had the cone.

It is. I got a cone in a late night vintage nose cone lot several years ago. The toughest part of the build is sizing the decals. My first attempt came out as a full sheet. Good news is now I have the decals if I decide to do an upscale.

You needed a new upscale project anyways, Bill.

I could scan the decals I have if it'd hep with sizing, or just measure em out.

One of the Sunward BT56 cones with canopy would work pretty well for an upscale.

Might not be big enough. This decal is huge.
