Default Manta Bomber and Attack Craft Orion Nose Cone

Manta Bomber and Attack Craft Orion Nose Cone

I have seen these on a few other models and I wonder if this NC can be made in paper or balsa or better yet paper covered balsa!
It looks like it is mostly flat lines and would make an easy paper model NC.

I will make this my project to reconstruct the NC.

All help will be appericated including obtaining a PNC copy of this NC.

Daniel

Those would be easy to do if someone has measurements...

Would indeed make a great project for cardstock. The toughest part would be fabricating some internal structure to reinforce the juncture of the flat plates and the tube. I may not have the original version but the Sirius part matches really closely for dimension.

I was posting last night from my iPad, so I didn't have access to either the file or the thread. Here is the file.

Is that the same nose cone for both rockets?
