Think I will try to get a shot of the new one leaving the pad with me in it when I get it done, 28 years later.

You can find Estes nose cone reference lists and pictures here on my building tips page:

That way you know what current kit to buy to bash into a particular OOP model.

Have to get up the nerve to cut my own BTs for the first time though, that Vigilante booster is only 2.75" as opposed to 4" or so on the CC Express.



Edit: deleted post because Scott already pointed out the nosecone differences. I feel like this now...
