Good choice of paint schemes.

(Anyone know why I get a weird horizontal stretched jpg when I click on the thumbnail? Doesn't happen for most posts here - It looks fine if I download the jpg and rotate it 90 degrees)

Thumbnail displays ok with my computer. Check your screen resolution or monitor settings.

I generally get that effect with all of Bob's posts for some time now. I am just assuming whatever he's using to take and upload the pictures doesn't play nice with how Safari on MacOS 10.13 (or several prior versions) interprets his uploads.

What is the exposed length (shoulder to tip) of the nose cone in your rocket? I have an old Centuri Stellar Spartan that is built but is missing its nose cone. Does anyone know the dimensions of the cone and whether it is available online?

Joe-

That cone would be the Centuri PNC-89 cone. You can pull up an old Centuri catalog on Ninfinger to check length. It something around 4.5" long or so. Check a 1971 catalog or later.....the '71 catalog is when the introduced plastic cones.
