Default Looking for Information On Estes #1279 Nike-Ajax

I am about to attempt a restoration of an Estes Nike-Ajax, kit #1279. It is missing its nose cone (BNC-20CB) and eRockets/Semroc doesn't stock it. As a starting point, does anyone have one of these that they could measure for me? I need the exposed length, i.e. from the shoulder forward. Even better, does anybody know of a vendor who sells these?

Joe

OK, anyway, thanks again for your help. I'll pick one up on my next order.

Hmmm.............although the link supplied in this thread by Polaris1324 worked for me, when I Google eRockets and go to their site, then choose Semroc Parts, Balsa nose cones, BNC20..............the cone I'm looking for doesn't show in their product list! Which explains why I didn't find it before.

Strange!

Unless Randy updated that Semroc nose cone, it doesn't have the right shape. I compared one to an original.

Can you post the dimensions of the original here?

Default Bnc-20cb

Attached is an image of what the original BNC-20CB cone should look like.

Mojo, I thought this thread was familiar.

You asked the same questions 2-3 years ago:
http://forums.rocketshoppe.com/show...hlight=BNC-20CB

In that thread I posted a picture of a semroc BNC-20CB and an original Estes BNC-20CB.

I guess you forgot....

Wolf, thanks for the refresh. Yeah, totally gone out of my mind. I'm claiming Senior's Privilege on this one.
