Default WANTED: PNC-55AC nose cone (Nike-X/Bull Pup/Cherokee D)

Anyone have a spare Nike-X/Bull Pup/Cherokee-D (I'm sure other kits have this too) "PNC-55AC" nose cone laying around?

I have an Estes Hornet in the build pile, and I really don't like the balsa nose cone, and prefer the shape of the PNC-55AC.

I don't care if your spare PNC-55AC is painted, I'm gonna sand and repaint anyway. Just need a servicable NC.

If nobody has an extra, use the Hobby Lobby 40% off coupon to get you a new Nike-X kit for $10 or $12. That amount just for the cone is a bit much, but you also get a BT-55 tube, motor mount, chute, etc. that you can use for other scratch builds.
I love sanding.

I found two in my box of spare rocket stuff. They match the one on my original Nike X. PM me an address and you can have this one.

I take it that you are re-creating the Estes classic version of the Centuri Magnumb-D Hornet from the early 80's and not the BT-20 based early 70's Estes Hornet.
When in doubt, WHACK the GAS and NEVER touch the brake !!!
