I've made my fair share of conical nose cones, up to 4". Impressively sturdy and strong with a couple coats of glue. They even survive lawn darts!
Is there any way of making an ogive nose cone with paper/posterboard?
As I was searching, I thought of a few ways it could be done. 1) Make a series of transitions and stack them up. or 2) Long vertical strips with a curve matching the ogive, or a combination of both for strength?
Mind you, I am planning on using this on a 5.25" dia. rocket.....
