Might I suggest when you do a kit production you also order spare plastics, especially nose cones for after market sales?

Focus:
Alpha BT-50
Goblin BT-55
Mean Machine BT-60
Maxi-Alpha BT-80
4" ogive BT-101 H

Some BT-70 NC? AJ or 3:1 ogive ok. (TARC)


I was trying to press the "Like" button but mysteriously could not find it ...

In many (most?) "planked-balsa" models, balsa skin strips are used instead of stringers, as in a wooden boat hull, and the skin strips (together with the formers) create a semi-monocoque structure, which would lend itself to laser-cutting for such rocket nose cones.
