Default TLP Hellfire

Comrades:

I'm distracted with a quick Restoration/Repaint of my wounded TLP Hellfire. I've had to replace the nose cone, but I can't find my plans for how much clay was in the original, which I stupidly threw away before measuring. (The short version: ballistic recovery with an absolutely shattered nose cone aftermath).

Anyway if anybody has this kit in the bag somewhere and doesn't mind telling me how much clay was in it or could weigh just your cone on a built one, well, that'd be great. I seem to recall it was two Estes-size clay squares. Mine was built stock with the only addition being fiberboard parachute shelf.

Thanks, guys.

My kit has a single sealed plastic bag with one lump of clay. The clay weighs .91 oz., but it is ROCK HARD. Don't know what the reconstituted weight would be.

Thanks,

I'll glue in a 1 oz. weight plus the epoxy to hold it and call it good.
