Empty, washed, and dried "Lawry's Seasoned Pepper" containers would be perfect--the new contents would look right, and no one "along the route" would really want to open them for fear of the (expected) sinus effects--hmmm...

Depending on one's acting skills--and the intelligence and/or perceptiveness (or the lack thereof) of the inspector (if it was near their shift-ending time or their break time, that would likely also help)--one might even get away with it! (A German model rocketeer--it *might* have been Oliver Missbach--once did that on return from an overseas trip, with cardboard "core tubes for an architectural model of a building with Greek [or Roman] columns," which were tightly packed full of rocket motors and had their ends well-sealed. In answer to the international airport inspector's question, "Couldn't you have gotten such tubes more easily and cheaply here in Germany?", he answered, "I needed inch-sized core tubes for the exact scale, because the building was made using inches and feet rather than meters and centimeters." He walked away smiling--and no doubt very relieved! :-) )

Thatís it!

I am familiar with Ace nose cones from years ago, but never really knew much about their kits.
