I have both the 'winder and Python kits and their nosecones are very different shapes and diameters. The 'winder is BT-55, or 1.325" OD and the Python is similar to Centuri ST-18 body tube at 1.84" OD.

You can check out my detailed RockSim files for both of these designs at

Estes Sidewinder EST#2125 (From a file I created and posted more than 18 years ago!)

Estes Python #2129

I still don't have any idea where the Python nosecone came from.

If the Python nose cone was not used elsewhere, I have no idea how this one is called a "SPEV".
When in doubt, WHACK the GAS and DITCH the brake !!!
