The two nose cones are not interchangeable. I have a reverse Astrocam set up with a length of Quest T-35 tubing and a Quest PNC-35 nose cone. I had to shim the base of the T-35 a bit so that it would fit the ST-13 (BT-56) shoulder of the Astrocam snugly.

The attached .pdf is a listing of the major pieces necessary to clone the basic EnerJet fleet with their Semroc part numbers. Anyone on this website can add their own recovery parts. I'm not sure eRockets recognizes the importance of these parts; some may be discontinued.

Well dang. I was hoping it would be an equivalent because I have several old Eagle/Falcon kits stored away. I may still dig one out and see how close the NC profile is. The clones wouldn't be an exact 1:1 if you had to shim, but if the NC profile is the same, nobody would notice without a direct comparison.
