Default Estes Strike Fighter

One of my Quark buddies is trying to build one of these using a nose cone he turned. Anyone have the tube dimensions and any other pertinent data? The instruction sheet at JimZ's is pretty weak. That wasn't a great time for Estes bothering to give information on the instructions.
Any help would be appreciated.

The length is 9" on the BT-55IJ main body tube...

Large wing pods are 2.75" BT-50J...

Small inner pod tubes (cannon tubes) are 5.1" BT-5P...

Standard BT-20J motor tube.

Jackpot!

I found a Strikefighter nose cone today for only $4.13 at a local hobby shop. Guess I'll be building this clone sooner rather than later. I never expected to find one just hangning on a rack. Too cool!

Later,
EV
