Does anyone know of a source for a 4" diameter upscaled Estes Fat Boy nose cone (BNC80)-- preferably plastic or fiberglass? I want to build an upscale Fat Boy...

YES! I've been looking for those nose cones! They're on the expensive side though.
Thanks.

HTH,
This appears to be a better upscale of the Estes-style nosecone. I will call Ken - thanks!

I have 2 Performance Rocketry nosecones. I have nothing bad to say about them. They are a little pricey but they are good strong fiberglass cones. You can order directly from them.
